Thomas Muller’s house is burgled in middle of Bayern vs Barcelona


Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller experienced a roller coaster of emotions on his birthday after his home was burgled in the middle of the Champions League match against Barcelona.

The Bavarians won the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Lucas Hernandez and Leroy Sane early in the second half.

According to German newspaper Bild, the midfielder’s home was broken into at around 10:00 pm local time on Tuesday night during the match against Barcelona.

Police confirmed the theft of cash, jewelry and valuables in the six-figure range. There is still no trace of the thieves and an investigation is underway.

The Bayern captain, who turned 33 on Tuesday, learned of the incident shortly after the final whistle and went straight home. This also explains why Muller did not give any post-match interviews.

Officially, Bayern announced that their player’s sudden departure was due to a “private meeting”.
