Heartbreak: This Nigerian bettor lost N14m after Mourinho’s Tottenham’s meltdown vs West Ham
A Nigerian better lost out heavily on Sunday when he saw the prospects of a huge payday wiped off after Tottenham Hotspurs three-nil lead, which would have guaranteed him a cool N14,170,823, was chalked off in the last 10 minutes by West Ham.
The betting slip was shared on Twitter by @cindy_blog who wrote: “My heart breaks for him.”
In a surprising twist of fate, Spurs incredibly collapsed in a game it had been in control of to draw 3-3 with the Hammers.
With almost the last kick of the game, Manuel Lanzini blasted a shot from distance into the roof of the net to snatch a point but, unknown to the Argentine, he was dashing the hope of a punter somewhere in faraway Nigeria with that goal.
