Football can make some go crazy. This is not in doubt. From those who have made Maradona a temple to those who kill themselves when there preferred team disappoints on the field. Yes, the beautiful game as Pele affectionately referred to it has some in serious thrall an bondage to it.
Take this two men who are presumed to be from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The two who will most likely offend some sensibilities decided to use their wives as bets in a soccer match pitting Manchester City against Manchester United.
In a handwritten contract seen by Mpasho.co.ke on Sunday, April 8, Amani Stanley, a Man-City fanatic, agreed to hand over his better half to Shilla Tony, a Man-United die-hard, for one week if the Blues lose to The Red Devils in the English Premier League (EPL).
Tony also agreed in writing to surrender his wife to Stanley in the event that Man-United loses the EPL cup to Man-City. Stanley wrote:
“I Amani Stanley do swear that if Manchester City doesn’t take the championship cup today in the match with Manchester United, Mr Shilla Tony will take my wife for a period of one week. In my sound mind, I was not forced into this contract.”
“I Shilla Tony do swear that in the event Manchester United will not win in the match with Manchester City, Mr Amani Stanley will take my wife for a period of one week. In my sound mind, I was not forced into this contract.”
The strange contract was signed by both Stanely and Tony and two witnesses.
The match between the two Manchester teams ended up with a win for Manchester United. Consequently, Stanley lost the bet and gave his wife to Tony for one week in accordance with their contract. Two Kenyans also joined the madness in betting their wives in a similar type of contract.
