It is believed the thieves had previously tried to hit on the property but were disturbed before they could do much damage. Club officials moved the 25yr old Brazilian and his young family – wife Larissa and two small children – into a hotel over the Christmas period and have now provided them with a security team tasked with protecting them at the home.
A source said:
‘They’d obviously been watching Roberto come and go, then swooped in.
‘It’s thought they are the same guys who were disturbed mid-burglary on a previous occasion. ‘He was obviously shaken up as he has a young family, so the club had him in a hotel before giving him security at the house.’
Forensic tests have been carried out on the house and investigation’s are underway.
