Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says his home was burgled during his side’s Champions League game against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. The Manchester United midfielder became the latest victim of Burglary at Manchester United after defender Victor Lindelof said his family were the subject of a break-in while the centre-back played against Brentford.
The France player was subbed on after 67 minutes as the Spanish side won 1-0. Pogba said “our family’s worst nightmare was realised when our home was broken into while our babies were sleeping in their bedroom”.
The family’s nanny was at home at the time and Pogba has offered a reward to “anyone who has a clue to help us “. Pogba’s two children are aged three and one.
The 29-year-old has been at United since re-joining the Old Trafford club in a then-world record £89m transfer from Juventus in 2016. His contract with the club runs out in the summer.
“My wife and I rushed home not knowing if our children were safe and unharmed,” added Pogba.
“As a father there is no feeling worse in this world than not being able to protect your children and I sincerely hope that no-one ever has to feel what I felt last night.”
Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo was injured when he tried to ward off a gang of intruders during a break-in over the Christmas period.
Manchester United are working with all their players to review and strengthen security at home.
