WATCH Panathinaikos Manager Get Hit In Face By Large Drink in Athens Derby [VIDEO]

Yiannis Anastasiou 600x329 WATCH Panathinaikos Manager Get Hit In Face By Large Drink in Athens Derby [VIDEO]

Panathinaikos manager Yiannis Anastasiou was hit in the face by a large cup of Coke thrown by a fan during a match between Panathinaikos and Olympiacos this past weekend.

Presumably the projectile was thrown by a disgruntled Olympiacos fan because Panathinaikos went on to win the match 3-0.

The YouTube description details what happened in the game:

“It kicked off in the Athens Derby at the weekend in Greek football’s biggest game, Olympiakos v Panathinkaios, won 3-0 by the visitors.

“The game spiraled out of control around a half-hour in when Olympiakos’ Olaitan collapsed on the pitch with a minor cardiac arrest, from which he’s recovered well.

“Olympiakos fans began raining missiles down on the pitch in the confusion that ensued, and Yiannis Anastasiou took a full bottle of Coca-Cola to the face, as can be seen in the [above video].

“You get the feeling Greek’s authorities won’t be conducting a witch hunt to track down the perpetrator…

“Thankfully Anastasiou escaped serious injury from the missile.”
