Milik robbed at gunpoint after UCL win


Milik, 24, was reportedly in his car heading towards his home at Varcaturo on the Domitian Coast 20km west of Naples at around 2am when his blocked off the road by a high-powered motorcycle

According to Italian police, the two assailants whose faces were entirely covered by helmets approached the footballer’s car and pointed a gun at him, ordering him to hand over his Rolex Daytona watch worth €7000 (R191 000)

The robbers then sped into the countryside towards Licola, police said according to the AGI news agency.

As soon as he recovered from the shock, Milik went to the nearest police station to report the crime.

Italian international Lorenzo Insigne was also a victim of crime in Italy in recent times.

The Italy forward was robbed of jewellery, cash and a luxury watch in 2016 and the club’s Slovakian captain Marek Hamsik, was held up at gunpoint in the centre of the city four years ago.

Napoli beat last year’s Champions League finalists 1-0 with a 90th-minute Insigne goal to go top of Group C.
