Roma defender Chris Smalling and his family were victims of an armed robbery at their home early on Friday, April 16.
The robbery took place at the former Manchester United centre-back’s home in southern Rome, with luxury watches and jewellery taken.
Thinking about you @ChrisSmalling and your lovely family. So sorry to wake up to the news this morning. Can’t imagine how you’re feeling but I hope you’re ok ♥️

Police, who were called to the house at 5am local time, are investigating the incident, in which no-one was harmed.
Smalling is understood to be shocked by the incident but is now calm after the situation was brought under control.
On Thursday evening, the defender watched from the sidelines with a knee injury as Roma secured a Europa League quarter-final aggregate win over Ajax.
