Giorgos Katidis reacts with Nazi salute

ATHENS, Greece -- AEK Athens midfielder Giorgos Katidis has earned rebukes from politicians, fellow athletes and fans after giving a Nazi salute in celebration of a goal he scored in the Greek league.

Photographs show him giving a Nazi salute after scoring the go-ahead goal in the 84th minute against visiting Veria on Saturday. In one photo, Katidis' Brazilian-born teammate, Roger Guerreiro, looks at him with an expression of astonishment.

The 20-year-old Katidis pleaded ignorance of the meaning of his gesture -- right arm extended and hand straightened. He claimed on his Twitter account that he detests fascism.

AEK's German coach Ewald Lienen, said the player doesn't have an "idea about politics."
