FC Barcelona defender Jules Kounde was reportedly robbed while he was playing against Real Betis on Saturday night. The Frenchman contributed to Barcelona’s 4-0 victory and even assisted Robert Lewandowski. However, his joy was cut short when he realized that his house had been broken into.
Kounde immediately informed the authorities and his club after discovering that he was robbed. No further details have been provided about the incident. Unfortunately, Kounde is not the first Barcelona player to fall victim to such a crime. Several high-profile players, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Samuel Umtiti, Arthur Melo, Luis Suarez, Ansu Fati, Jordi Alba, Philippe Coutinho, and Kevin Prince-Boateng, have also been robbed while with the club.
Kounde joined Barcelona from Sevilla in a €50m deal last summer. He is expected to be a vital player in the team’s starting XI for the next four years. This news comes as a reminder that football players are not immune to crime and that extra measures must be taken to protect them and their families.
It is not clear whether Kounde’s robbery had anything to do with his profession, but it is always essential for players to be vigilant and take precautions to avoid such incidents. Hopefully, the authorities will quickly apprehend those responsible for this crime and bring them to justice. Follow Knuckleball to stay updated with more FC Barcelona News.
