A woman allegedly stabbed her husband for returning home late after watching a match between Manchester United and Malaysia, Malaysian Police said.
District police chief Abdul Jalil Hassan said the man had promised to come back immediately after the match in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday evening, but his wife was "very angry" when he returned past midnight, nearly six hours late.
He said that the woman stabbed him twice in the chest with a kitchen knife and then took him to a hospital.
The man was recovering in a hospital.
Police have not decided whether to charge the woman with any offence.
