Some very distressing news is emerging after a robbery was committed at João Cancelo's home on Thursday.
The Manchester City star was left with a cut above his eye after trying to fight back against the thieves, who left the player's property with all his jewellery, leaving the family feeling very distressed.
He posted a selfie with the aforementioned cut on his Instagram story, and recounted the ordeal to his 2.1million followers.
The image was also shared on Twitter by City Report, where many fans came out in support of the Portuguese star, while others highlighted the need for footballers to have 24/7 security at their properties.
Cancelo will now be aiming to return to matters on the pitch, as City return to action away at Arsenal on New Year's Day.
