    ANKARA: You may have heard about fans queued up for hours to watch a football match, but one fan in Turkey has set an unprecedented example to express his love for the most-followed sport.

    The Turkish fan was banned to enter the football stadium for 12 months, he went to “great heights” to watch the match. Instead of fighting with the authorities, he rented a crane and watched the football club Denizlispor’s match from outside the stadium.

    Reportedly, the supporter has been identified as Ali Demirkaya and he was not allowed to enter Turkey’s Denizli Ataturk Stadium for around 12 months. However, it is unclear why he wasn’t allowed to enter the particular stadium.

    According to the media reports of Turkish football, Demirkaya started watching the match from the 75th minute. But later on, local police asked him to pull down his crane from the stadium premises. Although the man missed the final score, his favourite team won the match by 5-0.

    The football fan took social media by storm after his picture went viral. His act of fandom seems to be something every football fan would relate to, isn’t it? Check out some reactions on the micro-blogging site here.
