  On October 27, local time, a stabbing incident occurred in a shopping mall in the southern suburbs of Milan, Italy, resulting in one death and four injuries. Among the injured were Spanish player Pablo Mari, who was loaned from Premier League Arsenal to Serie A club Monza.

  Monza CEO Galliani revealed that Mali became one of the victims of the incident. He had a very deep wound on his back, but fortunately, no vital organs such as lungs were injured, and his life was not in danger.

  Galliani revealed that Mali still has some muscle injuries, but they are not serious. He is conscious and the doctor believes that his recovery will be very fast.

  Arsenal officials said they had contacted Pablo’s agent and were told that he is currently in hospital and is not seriously injured. “Our hearts go out to Pablo and the other victims of this horrific incident.”

  According to reports, the deceased was a supermarket employee, and three others were seriously injured. Police have arrested a 46-year-old male suspect.
