The France international released a statement on Twitter confirming the incident occurred minutes before the game ended.

Pogba and his wife immediately left Old Trafford after the final whistle to return home.

His statement reads: "Last night our family's worst nightmare was realized when our home was broken into and burglarized while our babies were sleeping in their bedroom.

"The burglars were in our home for less than five minutes but in that time they took from us something more valuable than anything we had in our home... our sense of safety and security.

"This occurred during the final minutes of last night's match when they knew that we would not be home.

"My wife and I rushed home not knowing if our children were safe and unharmed.

"As a father there is no feeling worse in this world than not being there to protect your children and I sincerely hope that no one ever has to feel what I felt last night.

"It is for this reason that I would like to offer a reward for anyone who has a clue to help us. Please send any info to [email protected]"

Pogba sadly isn't the first United player to be targeted this season.

Victor Lindelof's house was also broken into while his wife and children were home, four days later.

Lindelof was at the Brentford Community Stadium, playing in United's 3-1 win against the Bees.

The Portugal international was left with injuries to his face, which he showed on social media.

Inside the safe were the Chelsea academy graduate's Champions League, Super Cup and Euro 2020 medals.
