FIFA begins investigation into Greece/Bosnia scuffle
According to reports out of Bosnia, FIFA has begun their investigation on the scuffle that took place between the players and coaching staff after Greece’s World Cup qualifier against Bosnia in Zenica.
According to the report, FIFA will look into the matter and hand out the necessary consequences to those involved. Bosnia’s assistant coach, Stefan Zili, who punched Giannis Gianniotas in the face, which saw the Greek player lose two teeth, is expected to be given the harshest penalty including a very long suspension from the sport.
The report also stated that Giannis Gianniotas could be punished with a match suspension (multiple games) while Manolas, Besic, and Dzeko will likely avoid any sort of match suspensions. The report did not mention anything about the violence that took place in the stands nor any possible penalties facing either team (closed stadium bans).
FIFA would like to announce their final decision as soon as possible, however no official timeline as to when a decision will be made has been announced.
