Wanyama household robbed during match against Aston Villa
The home of Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama was robbed on Monday night while he was playing for his side in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.
The thieves broke into his home located in the St Cross area of Winchester, while Wanyama’s side were playing away in the fixture at Villa Park. Wanyama returned home after the draw to find his Range Rover, worth £60,000, three televisions, other electronics, designer clothing and jewellery all stolen. His vehicle was later found in Iver, Buckinghamshire.
Hampshire police are investigating the burglary, which they believe took place between 08:30 GMT on Sunday and 02:15 on Tuesday. They have stressed that “anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Priority Crime team at Winchester police station by calling 101.”
Sources close to the Southampton star said he was in “shock” and that his house had been turned “upside down”.
Wanyama who is also the Kenyan national captain, has scored three goals from 11 appearances for the Saints this season. He is currently into the second year of a four-year deal he signed in 2013.
