The incident is said to have happened outside of a pub in the town of Meru, both of capital city Nairobi on Saturday evening, and the Gunners fan is said to have grown irate by the Liverpool supporters constant goading.
The report said: “Anthony Muteithia, said to be a passionate Liverpool supporter died while being treated at the Meru Level Five hospital, after allegedly being stabbed by an enraged Arsenal fan.
“The Arsenal fan is said to have been angered by the Liverpool fan, who was celebrating at every goof the Arsenal side suffered.
