Manchester United fan stabbed for celebrating Michael Owen’s debut goal
Malaysian fan should have left early to beat the traffic
A Manchester United fan was allegedly stabbed by his wife after returning home late from his side’s victory against a Malaysian XI on Saturday. The Malaysian man was presumably in high spirits having witnessed Michael Owen’s first goal for the club, but his missus was less impressed.
Angry that her husband had rolled in after midnight having promised to be back immediately after the end of the match, the wife reportedly stabbed him twice in the chest. The incident was reported to police by the doctor who gave the man hospital treatment.
Police chief Abdul Jalil Hassan said: “He was with friends after the match, so that’s why he came home late.”
A woman has been detained in relation to the incident but has not yet been charged with any offence.
