Toni: 'Armed robbers broke into home'

World Cup winner Luca Toni confirms he and his family were the victims of an armed robbery at their home. ‘The most important thing is that my family is ok.’

The former Fiorentina, Bayern Munich and Verona striker made a statement on Instagram.

“Seeing as the story is circulating, I wanted to confirm that on Thursday evening between 19.30 and 21.30 I was robbed at home by three burglars who were wearing ski masks and had weapons.

“The most important thing is that my family is ok, they didn’t hurt us, even if it left a real trauma and was a huge scare. It’s sad that the criminals took away items that had sentimental value.

“Following the robbery, the police arrived, probably called by our neighbours who were suspicious at the movement of a car out front. The surveillance didn’t notice anything.

“I ask for respect and privacy for me and my family at this moment. Thank you to everyone.”
