Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery’s home was burgled on Wednesday evening as his side won a cup tie away at Strasbourg.
The robbery at the top floor flat of a chic Parisian street in the 16th arrondissement was discovered around 11pm by Emery’s wife.
Intruders also took signed Neymar shirts, a £6,000 Rolex watch and his wife Louisa Fernandez’s two Chanel bags – just as Emery was watching PSG win 4-2 at Strasbourg in the French League Cup.
Emery himself got back from Strasbourg in the early hours of Thursday.
“The door was closed but not locked,” the police said.
“The door was lifted off its hinges and the thieves took luxury handbags, jewellery, football shirts and designer clothes,” the police confirmed.
Louisa discovered the break-in at what they thought was their well-protected home at 11pm on Wednesday – about four hours before her husband returned home.
A French news outlet lepoint reports that the total cost of the robbery is 20,00 euros – about £18k.
The top-floor apartment in an upmarket Paris street has video cameras and two digicodes.
Paris Saint-Germain had a happier evening leaving Strasbourg with a 4-2 win and a place in the League Cup quarterfinals.
