World Cup Qualifier: Bosnia Coach Knocks Out Greece Player’s Tooth During Fight.

Olympiakos and Greece midfielder Giannis Gianniotas had his tooth knocked out by Bosnia coach Stephane Gilli with a huge punch in a brutal post-match fight. At the end of the 0-0 2018 World Cup qualifier, Roma team-mates Edin Dzeko and Kostas Manolas started an argument that spilled into a shoving match that suddenly turned into a mass brawl.

Bosnia coach knocks out Greece player's tooth in brawl


The ex-Manchester City striker and his club team-mate seemed to cool down after coaching staff from both sides dashed on to try to calm the situation.

But unused sub Gianniotas suddenly burst on the scene and tried to use his match shirt as a weapon.

But the benched brawler picked the wrong man to row with as Gilli connected with a karate kick and then a thunderous right hand.

It was not clear what Dezeko was fuming about that seemed to kick-off the fight but Manolas claimed it had something to do with a lack of respect for Greece’s national anthem.

He said: “The Bosnians should be ashamed of themselves for not respecting our national anthem. “This sort of thing does not represent football.”

The Greece fans then started fighting with the Bosnian riot police inside the stadium in ugly scenes.
