A Russian fan of Manchester United has been arrested on suspicion
A Russian fan of Manchester United has been arrested on suspicion of fatally stabbing a friend who supported Chelsea after an alcohol-fueled row, investigators in Nizhny Novgorod said on Wednesday.

The dispute in Russia's third-largest city took place on May 22, the day after Manchester United defeated Chelsea on penalties in an all-English Champions League final at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium.

Russian business news agency RBC said the 30-year-old Manchester United fan had been drinking spirits at the country house of his 64-year-old friend. When a heated discussion arose over which of the two teams was better, the Red Devils fan stabbed the pensioner in the heart. The victim died on the spot.

A spokesman for the investigation department in the city prosecutor's office told RIA Novosti that the suspect was arrested two days after the incident, and faces between six and 15 years in prison.
