Manchester United and France star, Paul Pogba has revealed his house was burgled while his two children were sleeping in their bedroom as he played in the Champions League on Tuesday night, March 15.
The World Cup winner took to social media on Wednesday to reveal he and his wife Zulay Pogba’s ‘worst nightmare’ have been realised, after they were robbed.
He has also offered a reward to anyone who can help him with information that will lead to the arrest of the culprits.
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 [email protected]’
Pogba came off the bench for United in their 1-0 defeat against Atletico Madrid, with the incident at his home taking place towards the end of the game.
He and his wife then rushed back to their house, the player said.
Pogba’s incident comes just few months after team-mate Victor Lindelof suffered a break-in at his own home.
