A football fan in Kenya has lost his life after allegedly mocking Arsenal fans following their 2-1 loss at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers FC last weekend, according to reports.
According to the Standard Newspaper report, the sad event occurred at Kinamba Centre along the Naivasha-Kirima Road in Kenya as a group of friends argued over the premier league match.
“The middle-aged man was hit on the head with a stone when he started mocking supporters of [Arsenal after the loss],” The Standard Newspaper reported.
“The group was watching the live match that was being aired on television when the incident occurred on Sunday night.
“The deceased was left bleeding from his head outside a petrol station located a few meters from the bar that the friends were drinking.”
A witness identified as Peter by police, went on to explain what transpired between those involved before the unfortunate incident.
“[The argument] degenerated into name-calling and the deceased was chased out of the bar and later attacked and left unconscious,” he revealed.
Police in the country have now launched a manhunt for those involved in the incident. Arsenal’s loss to Wolves moves Wolves up to sixth in the table, with Arsenal languishing in 14th.
It was a third straight loss at home for the 13-time English champions.
