Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro had his house robbed while he was playing the derby against Atletico Madrid on Saturday, sources close to the player have confirmed to ESPN FC.
Casemiro’s wife and his daughter were at their home when the incident happened but neither were hurt.
The Brazil international has become the latest footballer to have his house broken into in Spain in recent times.
The houses of Casemiro’s teammates Lucas Vazquez, Isco, Karim Benzema and his manager Zinedine Zidane have been targeted by the thieves in the past, while Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and Barcelona duo Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba have also had their property robbed.
Macarena Rodriguez, wife of Real Madrid winger Vazquez, voiced her concern about the spate of robberies.
“One after the other,” she wrote on her Instagram stories. “When will we be able to live in peace in your own home? When will we be able to go to work in peace?”
When asked about the incident at a news conference, Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said: “It’s really bad, not just for my players.
“These things are not pleasant. The other day it happened to Casemiro but luckily nothing happened, only material things.
“I hope it doesn’t happen to anyone again. What we can do is talk to the player so that he is ok and his family too.”
