Burglars invaded the home of Thomas Muller on Tuesday evening as he was in action against Barcelona. Police report that investigations are ongoing as they are yet to apprehend the burglars.

More and more football players are getting robbed in their homes.

The list is increasing daily, with new names on the chart. Not too long ago, Robert Lewandowski was a victim on his way to training. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyangwas also a victim of a home invasion.

The robbery attack on Aubameyang happened in his Barcelona home before joining Chelsea and left him with a broken jaw. With the increasing incidents, it is time for action to protect the players.


Just this week, another player fell victim to the dastard and cowardly acts of these robbers. While Bayern Munich were playing their Champions League game against Barcelona on Tuesday, Thomas Mueller was getting robbed in his home.

Thomas Muller becomes the victim of a robbery attack

Home burglars have struck again. It is the home of Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller this time. The German international, who was in action as his Bundesliga side beat Barcelona 2-0 on Tuesday, is the latest victim to be affected by the increasing incidents of player home invasions.

The home of the Bayern forward in the small town of Wettlkam, in the municipality of Otterfing south of Munich, was a target of burglars. The burglars broke into Muller’s home on Tuesday evening around 10 pm.


Muller was dispossessed of important valuables by the criminals during the incident. According to reports emerging from Germany, the striker lost goods worth over six digits. Reports by German newspaper BILD suggests that police confirmed that the burglars took cash, jewellery and other valuables.

Meanwhile, investigations are ongoing by the police, but there are still no traces of the burglars.

A birthday to remember and forget

It was Thomas Muller’s birthday on Tuesday, with the Bayern striker celebrating his 33rd birthday. While there was plenty to celebrate on the pitch, he had something to forget at home. The burglary in his home cast a dark shadow over his birthday celebrations.

Following a massive police hunt for the perpetrators, they could not find any trace of the burglars. The report concludes that the investigation is still ongoing.

Police claim the burglars escaped through a field. Police have yet to make headway as they search for the burglars despite using service dog handlers and police helicopters.

The 33-year-old did not score against Barcelona but was instrumental in the victory. He left the Allianz Arena in a hurry after the game without speaking to the media. Muller cited a private appointment for his failure. They initially believed he was off for a birthday party.
