Arsenal fan in Uganda left homeless after losing bet on Manchester United game
FOOTBALL By -The Metro | November 14th 2013
Arsene Wenger may have been left seething by Arsenal’s loss at Old Trafford on Sunday, but the result was a whole lot more damaging for one reckless supporter in Uganda.
Gunners mad Henry Dhabasani has been left homeless after betting his house on the result of the game with Manchester United fan Rashid Yiga.
In return Yiga staked his new car, and his wife, that David Moyes’ men would triumph.
However, it was Dhabasani who came out on the short end of the result after Robin Van Persie’s first-half header settled the match in United’s favour.
So serious was the bet that the two men put down the stake in writing with local leaders and fellow fans drafted in as witnesses.
The Ugandan Observer reports that Dhabasani, who has three wives and five kids, fainted at the end of the match as the result of his folly sank in.
He was evicted on Monday after several United fans stormed his home and threw him and his family out.
