Police in Ghana are on the hunt for two men who stabbed a talented footballer to death after an argument over the performance of Chelsea defender David Luiz during Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.
Deco made some remarks to three fans reportedly opposing Chelsea at the time which did not go down well with the three. These remarks were in response to the three critiquing the performance of David Luiz on the night.
The three fans reportedly went out only to come back with a jack knife and clubs to attack Deco. After Deco was stabbed, he was rushed to the Korle-Bu teaching hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
Police at the Tesano Police Station are undergoing investigation and are in the hunt for the three suspects.
