Manchester United star Paul Pogba has revealed his “worst fears were realised” after his home was burgled during their Champions League exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid.
The French star released a statement detailing the horrific incident at his home, which took place whilst his two children, who he shares with wife Zulay, were sleeping at the property. The midfielder is now offering a reward for anyone able to provide information about the incident.
Pogba wrote on social media: “Last night our family’s worst nightmare was realized when our home was broken into and burglarized while our babies were sleeping in their bedroom. 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.
“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. It is for this reason that I would like to offer a reward for anyone who has a clue to help us. Please send any info to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
