Soccer fan banned from stadium rents crane to see his team play
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | A die-hard fan of Turkish soccer club Denizlispor recently made international headlines after renting a crane so he could watch his team play in a league game, after being banned from the stadium for one year.
Photos and videos of 37-year-old Ali Demirkaya, a.k.a. ‘Amigo Ali’ is well-known as one of Denizlispor most fanatical supporters cheering for the team and waving its colors from high up, as the other supporters in the stadium turned away from the game just to see him, have been doing the rounds in Turkish and European media.
Unfortunately, Amigo Ali couldn’t remain in the spotlight for too long as police quickly arrived and asked the crane operator to lower the soccer fanatic.
His stunt proved that a mere stadium ban wasn’t going to keep him away from his beloved club.
