Manchester United fan commits suicide after the FA Cup defeat against Arsenal

shashi / 12 March 2015

A Manchester United fan committed suicide following United’s FA Cup loss against Arsenal. The incidence took place in Kenya, where a 42-year-old man drowned himself in the Indian Ocean from the Kilifi Bridge in Kilifi County, Kenya.

The coastguards found his body from Killifi creek earlier today. The belongings recovered from the scene do suggest that the diseased person was indeed a Manchester United fan.

Local journalists tried finding more about this unfortunate incidents from the local people and so far it has been understood that, this United fan was bragging about how his team would knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup and go on to win the competition.

Mombasa’s twitter handle posted the following images to confirm the news:

Unfortunately for him, Arsenal came away as the eventual winners courtesy goals from Nacho Monreal and former Manchester United player Danny Welbeck.

Wayne Rooney had given some hope to United after equalizing the score but after a terrible pass by Antonio Valencia, Welbeck ended United’s hope of progressing this year’s FA Cup semi-final.

It is also understood that the diseased was not happy with Welbeck scoring the winning goal especially after Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal had sold the player last summer claiming he was not good enough to remain with the red devils.

It is indeed an unfortunate occurrence which we never like to read or report about. Football fans are the most passionate sets of people around the world but a defeat is never bigger than the life of any person.

After all it is a sport where one team would lose and the other will win. One should never go to the limits of sacrificing their life after a loss or poor result. On behalf of the entire Sportzwiki team, we condemn this unfortunate loss and our heartfelt condolences go out to the loved ones of this special Manchester United fan from Kenya, who is no longer among us.
