His comment drew a flurry of sarcastic comments on Twitter with the majority of users accusing him of being entirely out of touch with the harsh reality in his home country.

At the same time, Greece is dealing with many homeless people and people who cannot afford to even eat well amidst the corona-virus pandemic.

Others compared him with the other Greek international star, Giannis Antetokounmpo who recently handed out food to the poor in his old neighbourhood in Athens incognito.
