I don't think you can use a bracket in a Sharkoon TG5, without seriously modding and possibly heating issues.

As an alternative you can also look for Thermaltake who has a rotational PCIe bracket for vertical mounting in several new cases. This solution will give you better airflow, because you can mount the gpu in the middle of the PCI slots. For example:
https://www.thermaltake.com/s300-tg-mid-tower.html
https://www.thermaltake.com/s500-tg-mid-tower.html
You will still be needing a PCI riser cable, but you can save on the bracket.

I wonder how the climate is in Tunisia at the moment and if Trump has put a ban on international movements of computerparts or people who move these parts.

Maybe I did miss something but he has a Coolermaster Mastercase MC500 ( see this post ). When you look at the backside than you can see that there is no frame between the brackets so he doesn't have to mod anything.

So you mean that I can use that bracket https://www.mega-pc.net/produit/gamemax-vertival-gpu-kit/ to put my gpu verticalli in an mc500 coolermaster case without any problems or moddings?

No, he owns a Sharkoon TG5 (see the topic name) and is a considering a Cooler Master MC500.
A bit confusing but than things change.

Yes, you can use that vertical mount in a Coolermaster MC500 without modding because there is no frame between the brackets at the backside. The problem with your Sharkoon TG5 is that there are horizontal framepieces between the brackets on the backside. When you mount the videocard vertically than the connectors of the videocard come in conflict with those horizontal framepieces and than you have to cut them away. This is not the case with the Coolermaster MC500 because there are no horizontal framepieces between the brackets.
