Angel Di Maria burgled during PSG-Nantes

The scene had attracted the attention of viewers present in front of their televisions to watch the PSG-Nantes match. During the second half, Leonardo came down from the presidential stand to speak to Mauricio Pochettino on the edge of the pitch. In the process, the Parisian coach replaced Angel Di Maria and accompanied his player to the locker room. His assistants then took over and announced to the former Real Madrid that his home, where his wife and children are, has just been robbed.

A 'violent' home jacking

According to initial information from RMC Sport and Mohamed Bouhafsi, sources close to the club in the capital spoke of an 'extremely violent' home-jacking. An investigation was immediately opened and, if some theorized in the first place about a kidnapping of the family of the one who has just extended to PSG, it would not be so. According to police sources contacted by RMC Sport, the burglars and Di Maria's wife and children have not crossed paths. Nearly 500,000 euros of jewellery were stolen.

Marquinhos also affected

The wife of the Argentine forward would be very shocked by the event. Another Paris Saint-Germain player suffered a similar incident during the meeting. This was Marquinhos who received news that his parents' home was broken into. According to the latest information from the Team, the father of the international Auriverde has been assaulted. The Brazilian's clan wanted to give news on his Instagram account overnight:

The press agent of Marquinhos, player of PSG and the Brazilian selection, confirms that, during the match between PSG and Nantes, the house of the athlete's parents was burgled while his family was present in the residence, but no one has suffered and everyone is doing well, with more fear than harm. The French authorities have opened an investigation.

However, no new to be had from Di Maria. These burglaries caused quite a stir Sunday evening, as soon as the news broke.
