Greek player gets 5-match ban

ATHENS, Greece -- A Greek professional soccer player has received a five-match ban for giving a Nazi-style salute after a goal last month.

The Greek Football Association disciplinary panel also ordered 20-year-old Giorgos Katidis of AEK Athens to pay a $1,300 fine and banned him from attending professional games for three months.

Katidis, a former under-21 national team captain, has been suspended by AEK until the end of the season and received a lifetime national team ban.

He has repeatedly apologized, initially insisting that he was unaware the straight-hand salute was associated with Nazi Germany.

AEK is 12th in Greece's 16-team league.
