Napoli Star Robbed At Gunpoint After Champions League Victory Against Liverpool

Italian police have confirmed that Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik was robbed at gunpoint after the club's Champions League triumph against Liverpool.

The 24-year-old Polish footballer was making his way to his car when two people confronted him, demanding that he handed over his €7,000 Rolex Daytona watch.

According to Agenzia Giornalistica Italia (via Channel NewsAsia), the two thieves were wearing helmets that covered their faces and made their escape on a motorcycle towards the countryside.

Lorenzo Insigne's late strike allowed the Italian club to beat the Reds 1-0 and, in the process, to climb to the top of Group C.

Napoli have enjoyed a successful start to the season under Carlo Ancelotti's leadership, with the club currently second in Serie A after five wins and two draws.
