PSG star Marquinhos' wife confirms his parents are OK after break-in at their Paris home as police open investigationMarch 15, 2021
PSG star Marquinho's glamorous wife has confirmed his parents are OK after a break-in at their Paris home.
Carol Cabrino said her in-laws were recovering after the 'shock' incident during PSG’s defeat to Nantes on Sunday.
French newspaper L’Equipe said Marqinhos’ dad was hit several times in the face and chest by the intruders, said to have confused the property with the footballer’s.
Cabrino, who got her break appearing on a reality TV show in their native Brazil, posted a statement on her Instagram confirming the break-in which said: “The house of Marquinhos’ parents was burgled while his family was inside.
“But no-one suffered and everyone is okay and recovering from the shock.”
The statement, from a spokesman for Marquinhos, added: “The French authorities have opened an inquiry."
Team-mate Angel Di Maria’s home was also targeted during the match.
The Argentine was substituted in the 62nd minute and escorted down the tunnel by boss Mauricio Pochettino before being informed about what happened and leaving in tears.
Initial reports pointed to members of his family being kidnapped, although it later emerged his wife and two daughters had been upstairs when the break-in occurred and only found out about it afterwards.
The thieves reportedly took jewellery from a safe worth around £430,000.
L'Equipe reported on Monday that PSG will fund 24-hour security for its stars in wake of the spate of robberies.
Many of the players have video surveillance but security guards will be hired to help afford the footballers and their families more protection.
Marquinhos, full name Marcos Aoas Correa, moved to PSG from Roma in July 2013.
He has won 47 caps for Brazil and made six further appearances on his way to a gold medal at the 2016 Olympic Games at home in Rio de Janeiro.
Carol went into labour with their daughter Maria Eduarda in November 2017 while watching her husband play a Champions League match against Anderlecht at the Parc des Princes.
