The ongoing World Cup tournament in Russia has seen a football-mad couple end their marriage over whether Lionel Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to a report in newspaper ‘Argumento I Fakti’, the couple named only as Arsen and Lyudmila fell out when he celebrated Argentina’s victory over Nigeria.
When the argument became uncontrollable, the man decided to pack his things and leave as his wife insisted that Portuguese star Ronaldo was a superior talent to Messi.
The next morning, Arsen filed for divorce at the courts of the city of Chelyabinsk in the Urals to officially end his marriage to Lyudmila.
Narrating the incident which led to the end of their marriage, Arsen who met his wife in a bar whilst watching the 2002 World Cup said: “Since the beginning of the World Cup, she mocked Messi and said he couldn’t even score a penalty against Iceland.
“I could not contain myself and told her what I thought about the vain Ronaldo, the Portuguese national team and all the clubs she likes.
“Then I took my belongings and left her forever.”
