Famous Footballers Who Have Been Victims of Crime

Paul Pogba, a famous midfielder for Manchester United, is one of many footballers who have had their home broken into whilst playing professional football.

Mr Pogba said that the burglary was one of his worst nightmares, it occurred whilst his children were asleep at home.

Pogba said that he found out he had been broken into just minutes after the match. 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”.

Victor Lindelöf, a United teammate of Pogba's, has also experienced a break-in at his home which he rightly said was "very traumatic". When the Victor was away in London, his house was broken into, forcing his wife to lock themselves and their two kids in a room.

Sadio Mané, a striker for Liverpool was yet another player who had his home broken into when playing a match in the champions league.

Other players who have fell victim to burglary and robbery whilst playing football are Steven Gerrard. Gerrard's wife, confronted the gang of burglars after they threatened to "kidnap her kids" unless she turned over jewellery and the contents of a safe.

The Security Risk of Routine

It is a sad fact that home invasions involving Premier League football stars are happening every year and becoming more and more regular. Unfortunately having their homes protected by security guards is one of the only things Footballers can do to deter and prevent criminal gangs who routinely stalk footballers and key an eye out to see if anyone is at their home during a game. As they then know they have several hours to break in and steal the assets that are frequently displayed on social media.
