Every time we hear from AEK Athens, it’s for the wrong reasons. Last season alone, one AEK player received a lifetime ban for a Nazi salute, the club declared bankruptcy, and to top it all off, their own fans chased the team off the pitch after a relegation-sealing own goal.
Sadly, it looks like AEK aren’t getting over their horror season anytime soon.
Now in the third division, AEK visited Egaleo this weekend, but before the match even started visiting AEK hooligans literally attempted to invade and take over the stadium, waging a full-blown flare war with the home fans:
Caught off-guard, the riot police eventually intervened to restore order. But in the 87th minute, AEK ultras once again stirred up trouble, despite the team closing out a 2-1 win.
Win or lose, it seems AEK somehow keeps attracting negative attention. But at least, their performance on the pitch has them on course to get promoted back into the second tier of Greek football.
