Officials from the club have confirmed that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Barcelona’s forward, was robbed and attacked at his home by four men wearing masks.

Spanish football giants confirmed that reports claimed the player and his wife were threatened with iron bars and guns.

FC Barcelona stated that the ex-Arsenal player, aged 33, and his wife are doing well despite the incident.

According to reports, the couple was tied up and handcuffed during Monday’s robbery.

Authorities claim at least four masked raiders entered a player’s house and then fled in a car.

After long periods with Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal, Aubameyang signed for Barcelona as a Gabon international.

He was an ineffective substitute for Valladolid’s Barcelona 4-0 league win on Sunday. He is expected to be one of the players that are sold so the club can clear its salary cap space.

Spain is not unusual for footballers to be attacked at their homes. However, these crimes are usually committed when they are away from home during matches.

Some past victims have been Alvaro Morata and Casemiro as well as Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti and Jordi Albi, former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Spanish police arrested a gang of players who broke into their homes during games a few years back.
