A man simply identified as David in Lagos, has reigned curses on Jose Mourinho and Manchester United, after losing a whooping sum of N2,870,483.25 in Sport bet following Manchester United loss to Feyenoord in the Europa opener match played in Holland.
The 37-year-old man who spoke with this writer on the loss, was very shocked that it was Manchester United that could make him lose such huge amount.
Dave had arranged 17 games on a single ticket, and staked the sum of N100 for the games, with a possible return of N1,698,510.80 while with bonus, the total winning amounted to N2,870,483.25.
Things seemed to be going on fine for the young man, as 16 other games which he tipped for both teams to score, over 2.5 and winning moved smoothly, and the man had hoped that United will do the miracle and probably score a late goal to keep the hope alive.
However, the situation became sour for the young man when Feyenoord scored a goal in 79 minutes, putting pressure on the poor man and further narrowing his hope of winning the huge sum.
The man had soaked chaplet in water and prayed that United should at least get a goal, as that could propel the team to score a second and win the match, but alas, it was different as United failed to help themselves and the man actualize his dream.
