The Argentine attacker of Paris Saint Germain Ángel Di María was substituted at the game time of the game that his team played against Nantes, when he learned that had been the victim of a robbery at his home.
A conversation between the sports director of the Parisian entity, who came down from the box of the Parque de los Príncipes stadium to the field of play to speak with the coach, the Argentine Mauricio Pochettino, led to the Di Maria’s retreat from the lawn.
Pochettino commented the event to his player while accompanying him to the locker room. According to L’Equipe, the footballer acknowledged at the end of the clash that his home had been assaulted.
The Argentine international, who days ago announced his renewal with Paris Saint Germain, left the match that ended with a 2-1 victory for Nantes because of this event, according to the French sports newspaper L’Equipe, which also points to what during the assault his family was present.
A few hours later, the Argentine media clarified that none of them had suffered physical damage, beyond the tremendous ‘shock’ of being held for some assailants. RMC spoke of a “extremely violent” robbery.
The club added that another club player had suffered a similar episode tonight. Is about Marquinhos, and specifically the house that was attacked would have been that of his parents, who fortunately were not damaged either. The Brazilian central played the entire game.
