The naked man who entered the field during the match Granada-Manchester United (0-2), this Thursday in the Europa League, is an exhibitionist activist noticed several times in the streets of the Andalusian city.
Its entry into play was not planned but it was very noticed. An entirely naked man invited himself onto the pitch during the first half of the quarter-final first leg of the Europa League between Granada and Manchester United (0-2) on Thursday. The man with the very thick beard offered himself a few antics on the lawn of the Los Carmenes stadium before being evacuated by the police… with whom he often has to deal.
He wants to promote peace in the world
The 38-year-old man is indeed well known in the Andalusian city. His name is Olmo Garcia and makes his nudity a way of life. Above all, a means of expression. Born in Granada, at the head of a company specializing in food for athletes, the entrepreneur regularly walks through the streets of the city in the simplest device to promote peace in the world.
“I do not protest, I collaborate”, he confided in 2016, year in which he began his happenings. “For me, it’s a way of claiming purity, peace, of showing that when you take off your clothes, you are more sincere with everything around you,” he said.
Since then, he has multiplied his appearances in the tourist places of the city, such as the patio de los Leones de la Alhambra, in the fountain of Paseo de los Tristes, along a railway line, in a shopping center. and even on ski slopes. Last December, he also posted – naked obviously – in one of the arches of the cathedral of Granada in the manner of a living statue.
This had led to the intervention of firefighters, forced to deploy the large scale to dislodge it. He offered himself a new more important exposure Thursday night during this quarter-final of the Europa League involving one of the most powerful and followed clubs in the world.
According to the Ideal newspaper, the activist managed to enter the compound by jumping over a gate located in one of the turns of the complex. Doubt remains as to how he was able to bypass the security perimeter.
