This is Asmir Begovic, the Everton F.C. goalkeeper who had an incident with a fan
Asmir Begovic is a Bosnian soccer player of Canadian nationality, who plays as a goalkeeper for Everton F. C. in the English Premier League, and today, when he finally started as a starter for his club, he faced an incident with a fan.
The player was in his goal, when at one point in the first half of the match, a fan of one of the teams, it is not yet confirmed which one, jumped onto the pitch and headed towards Begovic's goal.
What incident did Asmir Begovic have with the fan in the Everton vs Newcastle match?
In a matter of seconds, the fan arrived at Asmir Begovic's goal and tied his neck to Begovic's goal stick, who had to move away from the place for his safety, so that the stadium staff took charge of releasing the fan.
The incident lasted about 5 minutes, in which the Goodison Park staff members tried to free the fan from the restraint that this fan made, and with which he joined his neck to one of the Everton goalposts.
The staff members spent a long time trying to free him until one of them arrived with huge pliers and finally managed to cut the fan's restraint and free him.
Immediately the rest of the stadium staff members took the individual away, although another fan entered the pitch and tried to help him, but he did not manage to get very far and was also removed from the pitch.
What is known so far about Asmir Begovic's incident with the fan?
In the absence of official information from the authorities or the Goodison Park stadium, everything seems to indicate that the fan was carrying out an environmental protest, as he was wearing a t-shirt that read: "Just stop oil".
Before the player's shirt was seen, everyone thought that the protest was due to Everton's poor results this season, which has them on the verge of relegation.
And the club fell into this situation due to the bad management of Rafa Benitez, the Spanish coach who was finally fired, but the consequences of his mismanagement of the club are still reflected until now.
