Greek youngster Katidis apologises for Nazi-style salute


The AEK Athens midfielder caused widespread outrage after his goal celebration in his team's win over Veroia and took to Twitter to express remorse for his actions. (Other Leagues)

Update Unbeknownst to me, the title has changed to "Greek footballer gets national team life ban for Nazi salute".

Hate it when sites do that.

And so the crazy ignorant trolls come out, saying it is okay to do such a thing, and then defend hitler. To think there are still people who even try to minimize what that man did.

even if that player was a secret nazi sympathizer, its hard to believe he would be stupid enough to let that slip out

secrete nazi or not, this will follow him till death, a twitter apology wont cut it

Most athletes aren't that intelligent.

There's every chance he was just being stupid and didn't know what he was doing, but what a completely idiotic thing to do. If he's actually a nazi, you just don't do that in front of people with brains. Pathetic.

What a bunch of whiners. Mexico has a Nazi like salute too. Its an official salute to the flag.

The Americans did the same back in the day. the Salute was from Rome first until the black shirts started to do it in the 1920's.

I can't believe some of the comments...

Anyways probably a harsh decision for a lifetime ban if he honestly didn't know but who in this day and age doesn't know that that salute has been condemned for decades.

He is not feeling remorseful in the least. It's a PR stunt from his representatives. Player's agents and publicists do it all the time to protect their client's image.
