Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed that his home was raided by thieves when he was in action against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

The Frenchman came on after 67 minutes in the 1-0 defeat by the Spanish side that saw United go out in the last 16 and only learned about the raid after the game.

The midfielder in a statement revealed that the thieves only lasted five minutes in the apartment while our babies were sleeping in their bedroom and while they didn’t take anything, he revealed they were shaken and he has offered a reward to “anyone who has a clue to help us”.

“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,” he said in a statement.

Pogba has been at United since re-joining the Old Trafford club in a then-world record £89m transfer from Juventus in 2016 but his future at Old Trafford is in doubt as his deal expires in the summer.

It is not the first team in recent months that such an incident has happened in Manchester as Man 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 was the subject of a break-in while the center-back played against Brentford.
