A debate over who is the better football player – Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi – has led to a man killing his friend the day after his birthday, the Hindustan times reported on Monday.

A Nigerian man, Obinna Michael Durumchukwa, was celebrating his birthday with his friend, Nwabu Chukwuma, in Mumbai Saturday evening when the two began debating.

The conversation heated up and turned violent when Durumchukwa flung a glass at Chukwuma but missed, the report stated.

Chukwuma then reportedly stabbed Durumchukwa in the throat with a piece of broken glass, according to police inspector Kiran Kabadi

Chukwuma, 22, was allegedly backing the Real Madrid and Portugal star, while Durumchukwa, 34, was a fan of the Barcelona ace.

PI Kiran Kabade, from Tulinj police station, said: “We have arrested the accused for murder and are investigating whether the murder was actually the outcome of a minor argument.”
