Paul Pogba says his family experienced its “worst nightmare” as the French midfielder’s home was burglarized with his two children inside while he was playing for Manchester United in their Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid.
Pogba shared the news on social media, detailing how he and his model wife Zulay had rushed home from Old Trafford on Tuesday night after learning of the robbery.
“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,” wrote the World Cup winner.
“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.”
