Man knifed by wife for poor punctuality

A Malaysian woman has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her husband after he returned home late following Manchester United’s friendly with a Malaysia XI on Saturday. The man, who was stabbed in the chest, is reported to have promised to come straight back home after the pre-season friendly in Kuala Lumpur, which United won 3-2 courtesy of Michael Owen's first goal for the Red Devils on his debut.

The woman is believed to have stabbed her husband twice before taking him to hospital. However, doctors then became suspicious and informed police about the incident.

“He was with friends after the match, so that’s why he came home late.  His wife was very angry,” district police chief Abdul Jalil Hassan said.

The man is still recovering in hospital, and police have yet to decide whether to charge his wife.
