LaLiga: A closer look into how armed robbers broke into Morata’s house
LaLiga Could have been an inside job
Alvaro Morata‘s house was broken into on Friday June 7 at 23:00 CET whilst he was away on international duty with Spain.
Two armed robbers forced their way into his home in the affluent La Moraleja neighbourhood in Madrid.
Police are refusing to rule out the theory that it could have been an inside job.
Although Morata himself was not at the property at the time of the robbery, his wife, two children and maid were all there and are said to be completely shaken by the events that took place.
Watches, jewellery and expensive items were stolen in the raid.
Despite the fact that there were ample CCTV cameras, the two armed men managed to escape and have still not been apprehended by the authorities.
The way in which they carried out the break-in is very similar to that of other recent robberies, which have seen other footballers in Spain targeted.
Valencia players Gabriel Paulista, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Ezequiel Garay, as well as Villarreal centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori, have all fallen victim to a similar attack in recent months.
