Lindelof was with the Manchester United squad during the break-in
The house of Manchester United defender, Victor Lindelof, was broken into on Wednesday night, his wife has confirmed in a statement.
The Sweden international was away with the Manchester United squad at Brentford at the time of the incident and his wife Maia revealed how she and her children had to hide away from the intruders.
In her statement, she said: "During Victor's game this Wednesday we had a break-in at our home in Manchester.
"I was home alone with both the kids but we managed to hide and lock ourselves in a room before they entered our house.
"We are okay under the circumstances, but it was obviously a very traumatic and scary moment for both me and my little kids.
"We are now in Sweden and spending some time off with our families."
