Man stabbed to death in Champions League dispute
A man was stabbed to death in the northern Italian city of Turin in a
dispute over Inter Milan after the football team won the Champions
League final, the ANSA news agency reported on Sunday.
The victim, a 63-year-old Juventus supporter, was stabbed in the
chest and arm and died at one of Turin’s hospitals.
The man and his assailant, a 60-year-old Inter fan later arrested by
police, began arguing in a bar late on Saturday over Inter’s fielding of
too many foreign players to be truly considered an ‘Italian’ team,
according to ANSA’s reconstruction of events.
The dispute became deadly after the end of the match, as the victim
insulted Inter player Marco Materazzi for showing a t-shirt mocking
Juventus on television. Police would not immediately comment on the
matter.Inter beat Bayern Munich 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in
Madrid on Saturday to become the first Italian team to achieve the
treble of Serie A, Italian Cup and Champions League.
