The home of Manchester City star Jack Grealish was attacked by thieves during Manchester City’s 3-1 victory over Everton with his loved ones inside.
His loved ones were watching the Premier League game inside the property when the incident unfolded.
It’s claimed that the burglars escaped with items worth a significant amount of cash, with police investigating.
Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has expressed his relief that nobody was hurt and confirmed Grealish could be available for Saturday’s home game against Sheffield United.
“Fortunately nothing wrong happened where the family was inside,” said Guardiola.
“It is what it is today in the modern day, with many things happening. It was a bad moment for him and his family but, fortunately, what was not damaged were the people inside.”
Cheshire Police have released a statement on the matter. It read: “At around 9.50pm on Wednesday December 27 police were called to reports of a burglary. The caller reported that a number of items had been stolen.
