The Olympique Marseille player and French international Dimitri Payet suffered a burglary on Friday night, according to LeMonde.

While he was sleeping, criminals broke into his home and left with two jewelry boxes, valued at 110,000 euros ($129,500), according to a police source.

The newspaper added that in April 2016, midfielder Lassana Diarra was burgled. A few months earlier, in November 2015, it was the Tunisian-Dutch defender Karim Rekik who was the victim of a burglary, also during his sleep.

In April 2014, several hooded and armed individuals broke into the home of 20-year-old Mario Lemina, robbing him of several valuables. A month earlier, French international striker André-Pierre Gignac had several cars stolen from his garage while he was playing a game against PSG.

In July 2011, Brazilian defender Vitorino Hilton was spending the evening with his family when six armed and hooded men broke into his home. Struck by the event, he had immediately terminated his contract to sign in Montpellier a month later.

Ghanaian brothers André and Jordan Ayew were robbed twice in November 2010 and May 2011. In March 2011, it was the Argentinian player Lucho Gonzalez who had seen four armed and masked people intruding into his villa in Aix-en-Provence to take bank cards, valuables and his car. Shocked, he will also leave Marseilles a few months later.

In March 2010, the villa of Fabrice Abriel, in Aubagne, was also targeted by criminals. Two months earlier, Cameroonian Stéphane Mbia, who was in training with his selection, was the victim of a robbery at his home. In 2006, two other emblematic players of the club, Djibril Cissé and Mamadou Niang, had also been victims of burglaries.
