Fan handcuffs himself to goalpost during Premier League match 'because Ryanair wouldn't give his daughter a job'

I watched this football match last night on sky T.V (Everton-v-Man-City) but did not know the fan did what he did for this reason bounce How strange.

A Premier League match was brought to a standstill last night when a supporter handcuffed himself to a goalpost - over an airline's recruitment policy.

The pitch invasion forced the referee to halt the televised game between Everton and Manchester City for around five minutes.
It later emerged the man, who was today in custody, was protesting about Ryanair not giving his daughter a job.

The man emerged from the Goodison Park crowd with just under five minutes remaining until half-time and shackled himself to the frame of City keeper Joe Hart's goal.
A message on his T-shirt read: 'Europe's greatest training robbers. Ryanair. Lowest wages guaranteed. Stop. Recruitment scamming our children.'
After a five-minute hold-up he was released and led away by police.
In a statement, Everton said: 'Bolt-cutters were used to remove the offender, who was roundly booed as he was escorted from the ground.
'It transpired that the supporter is a known professional protester, allegedly protesting about an airline's recruitment policy. He was arrested by Merseyside Police, who are now dealing with the matter.'
Merseyside Police said a 46-year-old man from Southport was arrested for pitch invasion following the incident.
A spokesman added: 'He has been taken to a police station, where he remains, to be questioned.'
