While Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama was traversing the pitch in a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa approximately 150 miles away, his home was ransacked.

According to reports from his home country, the home of the Kenyan international was robbed of millions of dollars worth of belongings, including his $90,000 Range Rover SUV and three televisions. Reports also say that clothing and shoes were taking during the robbery.

Teams are required to arrive at least a day prior to road matches, and with the game a Monday night game finishing around 10pm local time in England, it’s likely he was away for at least two nights.

The Nairobi News cited a family member of the 23-year-old, who said, “It seems the thieves had ample time considering he was not in the house. They turned the house upside down and [Victor] is still in shock. The police have been called in and investigations have started.”

Wanyama has been a great asset to Southampton so far this season, scoring three goals and notching an assist through 11 matches. According to Squawka statistics, the imposing midfielder has completed 61% of his tackles and an impressive 100% of his 11 take-ons so far this season. Squawka has rated him 4.5 out of 5 stars this season.
