Gang arrested over player burglaries; Thomas Partey recovers Champions League medal

The gang that pulled off a series of burglaries against LaLiga footballers has been caught and arrested.

Eldiario.es reports four people have been arrested connected to raids on homes of players of Real Madrid and Atletico.

The operation was carried out between the cities of Madrid and Toledo, where the alleged criminals were arrested. Law enforcement have managed to recover some valuables that were taken from the homes of the players.

Among the jewels and other belongings, the Champions League runners-up medal of Thomas Partey was found. The Atletico Madrid midfielder's home was raided earlier this month, while he was in Russia for the European match against Lokmotiv Moscow.

Casemiro, Isco, Zinedine Zidane and Alvaro Morata were some of those in Madrid who were victims of robberies.
