Serial pitch invader’s plans to make history scuppered
Crazed Barcelona uber-fan and pitch invading legend Jimmy Jump had to shelve plans to grab the 5000th La Liga goal after being taken into custody by Samuel Eto’o. Jimmy, who famously handed Thierry Henry a Barca shirt while he was still at Arsenal, was apprehended and marched off the pitch by Eto’o. Clearly such antics are not appreciated when Barca are not winning!
Jimmy Jump’s official website claimed: “Jimmy has just jumped (today, February 1st, 2009) at the Sardinero, in Santander, during the match Racing – Barca. Our jumper wanted to score the goal number 5000 of the Barca history but it has been impossible and Eto’o ‘walked him’ out of the field. But Jimmy is happy because he wanted to jump where Barca played his first league match, in the 1929, and he has got it.”
