These are situations that nobody wants to experience! On Monday, Benfica confirmed that left-back Nicolas Otamendi was the victim of a robbery at his own home in the early hours of the morning on Monday. The shock is of course deep after this incident. Nevertheless, the Argentine (33) and his family are doing well under the circumstances.
The burglars were extremely brutal. They forced Otamendi to hand over valuables such as money, jewelry, and watches. According to Portuguese media, he was even beaten with a belt by the four men. Subsequently, the former Manchester City star is said to have been locked in a room with his wife and son. Now the police are investigating. As a result of the events, Otamendi is said to have even hired private security personnel.
