Paul Pogba’s home burgled while children slept in bedrooms

Manchester United midfielder says ‘nightmare’ break-in occurred while he played at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has become the latest footballer to have his house burgled while he was playing in a high-profile game.

The French international described the five-minute break-in as “our family’s worst nightmare” and said his children were asleep in their bedrooms at the time.

Pogba said he discovered he had been burgled minutes after Manchester United’s Champions League defeat to Atlético Madrid at Old Trafford on Tuesday, a game in which he had appeared as a second-half substitute.

He tweeted: “The burglars were in our home for less than five minutes but in that time they took from us something more valuable than anything we had in our home … our sense of safety and security.”

He added: “This occurred during the final minutes of last night’s match when they knew that we would not be home. My wife and I rushed home not knowing if our children were safe and unharmed.

“As a father there is no feeling worse in this world than not being there to protect your children and I sincerely hope that no one ever has to feel what I felt last night.”

Pogba also offered a reward to “anyone who has a clue to help us”.

Pogba’s United teammate Victor Lindelöf was the victim of what he described as a “very traumatic” break-in at his house as he played against Brentford in January.
