Angel Di Maria’ home robbed, family held hostage during Paris Saint-Germain game

Angel Di Maria left Paris Saint-Germain‘s game against Nantes early on Sunday to rush to his home where his family had been held hostage during a robbery, sources have told ESPN.

The Argentina international was substituted off by Mauricio Pochettino just after the hour mark after a strange scene where Leonardo, Paris’ sporting director, filtered the bad news to the PSG manager, who then informed his player while walking him back to the dressing room.

A visibly upset Di Maria left the Parc des Princes to rush home to be with his family.

The police has opened an investigation and the club will offer their full support to the 33-year-old, who just signed a new one-year deal at the club.

Di Maria went through a similar experience when playing for Manchester United in 2015, when he and his family were the victims of an attempted raid by burglars.

Another PSG player, as yet unnamed, also had his home burgled during the Nantes game.
