The Barcelona star was robbed at his home

The home of Barcelona’s Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was robbed early Monday morning.

Details are being clarified in a report published by the Spanish newspaper El Pais, which claims that at least four masked thieves armed with firearms and iron bars broke into the garden of Aubameyang’s house in the Castelldefels district of the Catalan capital.

Aubameyang was allegedly threatened with a gun before being beaten, and the men also intimidated the footballer’s wife into giving them access to a safe in the house to steal jewelry and money.

The thieves tied Aubameyang and threw him to the ground for about an hour, with some of them speaking Italian.

It is not uncommon for a player’s home to be robbed, but usually such events occur when the player is not at home, often during a match.

On Sunday, Aubameyang, 33, was on the bench during the Valladolid match that brought them together in a 4-0 victory for the Catalan side in the third round of the Spanish league.

Aubameyang became the second Barcelona player to be the victim of a criminal act in the past few days: Polish striker Robert Lewandowski had a luxury watch stolen in San Juan Despi, although the player’s family immediately returned the watch and arrested the thief.

Notably, the Gabonese striker had moved to Catalonia earlier as a free player from Arsenal in January, and Aubameyang’s future at Camp Nou is no longer guaranteed after Polish star Robert Lewandowski moved to Barca from Bayern Munich.
