Family of Chelsea striker Morata victims of armed robbery

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata's Madrid home was targeted by armed burglars on Friday night.

Morata, on-loan with Atletico Madrid, was on international duty with Spain in the Faroe Islands at the time.

A group of burglars entered Morata's home in Mirasierra, on the outskirts of Madrid while his wife Alice Campello and their twin sons Alessandro and Leonardo were inside.

The thieves took objects of commercial value as well as items of great sentimental worth to the owners. The experience was a great shock to Morata's wife, who was looking after the children at the time of the robbery, reports AS.
