Paul Pogba has revealed his home was burgled during Manchester United’s Champions League game against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.
Pogba came on after 67 minutes as the Spanish champions won 1-0 to progress 2-1 on aggregate.
Reacting to the incident 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 whose two children are aged three and one, added:”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 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 fight off a gang of intruders during a break-in over the Christmas period.
And, in January, the wife of Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof said her family were the subject of a break-in while the centre-back played against Brentford.
Manchester United are working with all their players to review and strengthen security at home.
