PSG player and family 'kidnapped and held at knifepoint' during 'terrifying' ordeal

PSG player and family 'kidnapped and held at knifepoint' during 'terrifying' ordeal

Shocking reports out of France.

PSG goalkeeper Alexandre Letellier was 'kidnapped and held at knifepoint' along with members of family during a burglary of his house, according to reports in France.

The 33-year-old, who signed for the French club in 2020 and is their third-choice goalkeeper, and his wife were awakened by the triggering of their alarm at around 2am on Tuesday morning, according to French outlet RMC.

It is reported that although they called police immediately, four criminals were able to enter their house and 'kidnap' both the couple and their two children, aged two and six years old.

RMC add that 'at knifepoint', the criminals 'demanded money and jewelry', and claim one of them hit Letellier's wife in the face.

The report also states, however, that police were able to make a 'rapid intervention' and arrested three of the four burglars. Two of them were minors, while one was an adult, it is said.

One of the officers was injured on the knee, while various items that were stolen were found on the suspects.

Letellier has not made a first team appearance for PSG this season, but has been a regular on the bench for Luis Enrique's side.

His most recent appearance for the club came on the final day of last season's Ligue 1 campaign, with PSG having already won the title.

The 33-year-old came off the bench for the final 11 minutes of their 3-2 defeat to Clermont Foot, replacing Gianluigi Donnarumma.

A former PSG youth player, he told France Bleus Paris in 2020 about his decision to return to the club: "It is true that when the call arrives, it is a little difficult to realise.

"It is my agent who calls me first to tell me that Paris was interested in my profile.

"It is true that it takes a little time to realise, but once you start to have the people of the club on the phone you tell yourself that it is very real. After, you do not think anymore, you sign.

"The love I have for this club... there is no question."
