“The Sun” newspaper reported “the theft of three precious hours from Manchester City player Riyad Mahrez,” and that the robbers took “cash, rare soccer jerseys,” and jewelry from his apartment.
She noted that the value of the stolen goods is estimated at “500 thousand pounds (about 620 thousand dollars)”, about half of it for an hour valued at 230 thousand pounds, similar to the hour that thieves stole earlier this May, when they stormed the home of Tottenham Hotspur Daily Alli player.
While Ally was assaulted at the time by the two robbers who stormed his residence, The Sun indicated that Mahrez was outside his home in central Manchester, when the theft occurred.
The newspaper pointed out that the robbers stormed four apartments in the same area, among them the apartment of the 29-year-old Algerian captain.
“About five oclock in the afternoon on Friday, April 24, the police were called in after reports of four separate apartments being stolen in a compound in the city center,” The Sun quoted a Manchester police spokesman as saying.
Mahrez joined City in 2018, and crowned him with the Premier League title last season, which is his second in England after his first with Leicester in the 2015-2016 season in which he was chosen the best player in the Premier League.
In the summer of 2019, Majraz led his country, Algeria, to win the African Cup of Nations for the second time in its history.
Mehrez emerged in the tournament hosted by Egypt, especially in the semi-final match against Nigeria, when he gave the “Desert Warriors” a 2-1 victory, with a free kick in the last seconds.
