Darren Fletcher's Home Robbed

Manchester United's star midfielder, Darren Fletcher, had his Bowdon home looted by criminals on Monday, shortly after leaving for Milan with his teammates for the Champions League game with Internazionale.

The robbery was committed by three masked men at the time when Fletcher's mother and girlfriend were present in the house in the Manchester suburb. Both women were threatened with a knife and Fletcher's fiancee Helen had to surrender her engagement ring. Objects like jewelry and watches were taken away by the bandits but luckily no-one was hurt.

The witnesses described the assailants as youths in their early twenties and a police investigation is underway. The Scotsman thus joins the growing group of the Premiership players whose houses have been robbed over the past years. The previous victims include Steven Gerrard, Dirk Kuyt, José Reina, Jerzy Dudek, Daniel Agger, Peter Crouch and Lucas Leiva, intriguingly, all of them Liverpool players during the robbery.
