Man Utd star Victor Lindelof's wife and kids terrified as burglars raid home while he was playing against Brentford

MANCHESTER United star Victor Lindelof's wife and kids were left terrified as burglars raided their home while he was playing against Brentford.

The defender's wife Maja Lindelof posted the traumatic news to her Instagram this afternoon.

She and her children were forced to hide and lock themselves in a room while thugs raided their home.

The Manchester United centre-back, 27, was playing away at Brentford at the time.

Maja, who is a businesswoman in her on right, wrote on social media: "During Victor's game this Wednesday night we had a break-in at our house in Manchester.

"I was home alone with both kids but we managed to hide and lock ourselves in a room before they entered our house."

Maja said that she and her children were traumatised by the "scary moment" – and the family are now taking time out in Sweden.

The mum, who married the footballer in 2018, added: "We are okay under the circumstances but it was obviously a very traumatic and scary moment for both me and my little kids.

"We are now in Sweden and are spending some time off with our families."

The Swedish defender played in the match against Brentford on Wednesday – where they won 3-1.

He helped Man United to their victory as his family tragically faced the traumatic break-in at home.

The club statement said:  “We can confirm that a break-in occurred at Victor Lindelof’s house during the away game against Brentford.

"His family, who were at home at the time, were unhurt but clearly shaken.

"This was a distressing experience for them, and for Victor when he learned of it after the game, and the club is providing them with our full support.

“We encourage anyone with information about the crime to contact the police.”

This comes as Angel Di Maria's home was the subject of a 'violent robbery' last March while he took on Nantes at the Parc des Princes.

Di Maria was taken off by boss Mauricio Pochettino after news reached the stadium.

Police rushed to the scene following the break-in – with Di Maria's wife Jorgelina and their two children in the house at the time.

And in December, Manchester City star Joao Cancelo, 27, shared a snap of his battered face after he was 'assaulted by four cowards' as he protected his family in their home.

Cancelo suggested he attempted to fight back – claiming he 'showed resistance' – as the thugs threatened partner Daniela Machado and daughter Alicia, two, before excaping with jewellery.

The Portuguese defender captioned the shocking image: "Unfortunately today I was assaulted by four cowards who hurt me and tried to hurt my family.

"When you show resistance this is what happens.

"They managed to take all my jewellery and leave me with my face in this state.

"I don't know how there are people with such meanness."

And earlier this month, police arrested a housemaid working for former Man United defender Marcos Rojo following a break-in at his home on a gated residential estate in Argentina.

The 44-year-old woman was held after watches, jewellery, cash and other valuables were stolen.

Rojo, now playing for Boca Juniors, discovered the burglary when he returned to his home near the native city of La Plata in the early hours of Tuesday morning after watching his team play against Chilean side Colo Colo.
