Banned football fan hires crane to watch his team playing
A football fan in Turkey is trending on social media for his decision to pull all stops to watch his favourite team in action despite serving a stadium ban.
The Denizlispor fan beat the ban by renting a crane in order to watch Saturday’s league match against Gaziantepspor.
Images and videos uploaded on social media show the fan enjoying the match from a vintage position high in the skies from a crane towering above the stadium.
In the end, whatever the amount of cash he spent on hiring the hire counted as money well spent as his team ran out with a comfortable 5-0 victory.
Media reports suggests this fan has been banned from accessing the stadium for a year but with his with level of ingenuity, he probably won’t miss much of the action whenever his team is playing.
On social media, tweeps described the fan as a ‘legend’ and ‘patriot’.
Only in Turkey ??
