A manager in Turkey has found a unique way to overcome his nine-month stadium ban after hiring a crane to see his team play.
Hamit Isik was dealt a mammoth 285-day suspension after angrily confronting a referee, meaning that he could not watch his Corum Beledivespor side face Darcia Genclerbirligi in the third division play-off firsture.
But rather than watching the match from the comfort of his home, Isik used his brain and came up with a genius solution to see the game first hand. He hired a crane.

Despite the Professional Football Discipinary Board dishing out the sanction, Isik was not technically in the stadium and was adhering to his lengthy ban. The only problem foir his is that his efforts weren’t rewarded as the game played out in a 0-0 draw.
The irony comes in that Isik was one of the very few who actually got to see the match, given that recent crowd trouble has caused the game to be played behind closed doors.
