Paul Pogba has revealed his home was burgled during Manchester United's clash with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
The French midfielder took to social media on Wednesday night to offer a reward for anybody able to come forward with information after intruders entered his home while his children were sleeping.
In a powerful statement, Pogba detailed the horror of finding out that his children had been put in danger whilst he was away, explaining that "there is no feeling worse" than not being at home to protect them.
"Last night our family's worst nightmare was realised when our home was broken into and burglarized while our babies were sleeping in their bedroom," Pogba wrote on Twitter.
"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 dafe 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@example.com."
Unfortunately, the burglary at Pogba's home is not an isolated incident. Manchester United teammate Victor Lindelof was targeted by burglars in January, while Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo was assaulted in the lead up to the New Year as thieves attempted to break into his home.
