Kostas Zouraris

15 January 2018

Deputy Education Minister Kostas Zouraris Minister has reportedly submitted his resignation on Sunday (local time) following accusations of making offensive comments on a radio program against two Greek prominent football clubs.

“10,000 [Olympiakos fans] sit on the lowest part of my …” and “Who gives a f*** about Aris,” he said whilst giving an interview on Thessaloniki’s Metropolis 95.5 FM Radio on Saturday.

The controversial AN. EL (right wing Independent Greeks Party) politician's portfolio is mainly focused on education issues for expatriate Greeks.

Belittling comments are not a new thing for Zouraris, however, his most recent tantrum triggered major backlash from Greek soccer fans, sports clubs and political parties alike.
