We might joke sometimes about the argument between Ronaldo and Messi fanboys over who the better player is but things have taken a very dark turn after a Ronaldo fan killed a Messi fan allegedly over a debate about the pair.

The incident happened in Nigeria over the weekend where Obinna Michael Durumchukwa and Nwabu Chukwuma got into an argument about which player was better whilst at Durumchukwa’s birthday party in Mumbai.

The report in the Hindustan Times says that “Durumchukwa flung a glass at Chukwuma” whilst they argued over the merits of the two footballing superstars. The glass missed it’s intended target and smashed against a wall.

Chukwuma then picked up some of the shattered glass and attacked his friend, stabbing him in his neck in the process, according to police inspector Kiran Kabadi.

PI Kabadi of the Tulinj police station told NDTV journalist Khan: “We have arrested the accused for murder and are investigating whether the murder was actually the outcome of a minor argument.”

Durumchukwa was arguing the merits of Messi, who bagged two goals at the weekend, whilst Chukwuma was on the side of Ronaldo, who got four in Real’s 7-1 win on Saturday.

It’s sad that people can’t understand how lucky we are to see both players at the same time and the cost of a life proves just how pathetically trivial the whole thing is.
