The team’s manager, Frank Lampard, paid dearly for Everton FC’s victory in the Premier League.
“I broke my hand celebrating. It hurts a bit and it shakes a bit but I don’t care,” the 43-year-old said after the last-minute 1-0 win over Newcastle United.
Lampard apparently suffered the injury while celebrating Alex Iwobi’s last goal (90+9) despite being outnumbered.
Spectators tie themselves to the goal post
Previously there had been a curious interruption of the game in the game. A spectator had tied himself to the goal post with a cable tie around his neck and had to be “freed” by several marshals with shears before he could be removed from the pitch.
The young man was wearing an orange t-shirt that read “Just Stop Oil”, a campaign group working to stop fossil fuel exploration in the UK. After a break of almost ten minutes, the recovery game continued.
