Barcelona Star Jules Kounde Was Robbed While He Was Playing Against Real Betis
Barcelona star Jules Kounde was robbed while he was playing on Saturday night, as they beat Real Betis 4-0.
The Frenchman was in action at the time, contributing an assist for Robert Lewandowski, as the Blaugrana cruised to a win.
According to MD (via Sport), his house was broken into on Saturday night. The player informed the authorities and the club when he realised the incident had taken place – no further details have been provided.
Kounde is far from the first player to suffer such a fate, the most high-profile case being Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was assaulted and robbed at gunpoint last season. Samuel Umtiti, Arthur Melo, Luis Suarez, Ansu Fati, Jordi Alba, Philippe Coutinho and Kevin Prince-Boateng have all fallen victim to the same crime while with Barcelona.
Kounde arrived from Sevilla last summer in €50m deal, and is set to be a mainstay in the starting XI for the next four years of his deal.
