The forbidden stunt was, however, short-lived. The superfan, nicknamed “Amigo Ali”, later told Yeni Asir newspaper: “That match was very important for our team (Denizlispor). I had to go to the police station to sign a paper to show that I am not watching the match in the stadium. Then I quickly went to rent the crane.”
“I paid 354 liras (€70) for the rent. I started watching from the 75th minute but police officers didn’t allow me to watch until the end.”
Local reports say the superfan has a year-long ban from entering the stadium, but it was not immediately known why he was ousted.
Denizlispor won the match against Gaziantepspor 5-0.
