A Manchester United supporter committed suicide after the Red Devils' 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Arsenal on Monday.

According to reports, the man was very confident that the Red Devils will humiliate Arsenal in the cup clash, but goals from Nacho Monreal and former United player Danny Welbeck sealed the Gunners' passage to the semi-finals at Wembley.

Money, credit cards and identification were all recovered from his wallet after his body was found, with the Mombasa government tweeting an image of the man's body on Friday morning.

Suicides have become particular prevalent in football hotspots of Africa over the past few years.

In 2009 an Arsenal fan hanged himself after his team lost 3-1 to Manchester United in the Champions League semi-final while in December 2013 another Kenyan jumped from the seventh floor of a building after learning that Manchester Unied had lost to Newcastle United that same day.
