Arsenal fan Henry Dhabasani loses house in bet against Manchester United fan who staked his wife and car

Henry Dhabasani from the Iganga District of Eastern Uganda reportedly lost his house in a bet over the outcome of the match on Sunday when Manchester United beat Arsenal.

It's claimed that before the game Dhabasani staked his two-room home in a bet with Rashid Yiga that Arsenal would win the game at Old Trafford. Yiga accepted the bet, and put quite a bit on the line himself. Along with his Toyota Premio, he also staked his wife.

The pair put their bet in writing, which was witnessed by local leaders and fans.

Dhabasani, who is married to three wives and has five children, reportedly fainted upon the final whistle with the score ending 1-0 to Manchester United.

On Monday, Manchester United fans "stormed" Dhabasani’s home and threw him and his family out, according to the Observer in Uganda.
