In another incident of a footballer getting robbed, Dutch forward Justin Kluivert suffered a burglary worth €200k. While the Valencia star had travelled to Iberostar Stadium for a game against Real Mallorca on Thursday night, some hooded robbers raided his house, on the outskirts of Valencia. Not only this but his partner also who was alone at home at that time got attacked by the robbers before they stole worth around 200,000 euros in jewellery and watches.
According to the Daily Mail, Kluivert’s partner came across a few hooded men carrying out the robbery on May 24, Wednesday night. The 24-year-old is currently on loan at Valencia from Serie A side Roma. Not only this, but the Spanish outlet Valencia Plaza adds that the thieves allegedly demanded to know where the couple’s most valuable items were. Kluivert’s partner is reported to have suffered minor injuries.
Notably, Kluivert joined Valencia on loan last summer with an option to buy. In his 26 appearances across competitions, he scored eight goals and provided two assists. The robbery took place while Kluivert’s partner was returning from walking the dog in the evening, and the robbers beat her to get her to tell where their valuables were.
She is reportedly doing fine as she suffered scary but minor injuries. The club has said that the player will stay in Mallorca to play the important match. Notably, this isn’t the first time a Valencia player has been robbed at home; earlier Samu Castillejo suffered a robbery at home.
