Newcastle United’s Alexander Isak opens up on home burglary after being targeted in £1m sting

Newcastle United duo Alexander Isak and Emil Krafth have spoken out after the former’s Northumberland home was burgled earlier this year.

Isak’s Darras Hall property was broken into by thieves on April 4th, with his car also stolen and subsequently found abandoned just three miles down the road. The Newcastle forward was one of many who had their homes targeted in a short space of time, with money, clothes and jewellery said to be worth more than £1m taken from various properties in Sunderland, Newcastle and Northumberland in a matter of weeks.

Officers from the

North East Regional Organised Crime Unit later confirmed that two men and three women had been arrested on suspicion of handling stolen goods. Asked about the matter while on international duty with Sweden, Isak told reporters: “It wasn’t very dramatic. I wasn’t home, nobody was home.

It was sad, but those who did it were caught quite quickly afterwards. I feel fine after it all, but it wasn’t a good feeling. I was able to move on pretty quickly.”

Isak is just one of many big-name players to have been targeted by criminals in recent years. Sweden team-mate Victor Lindelof also fell foul, as did Newcastle co-star Joelinton. The likes of Raheem Sterling, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba and Fabinho also had their property broken into while playing in the Premier League.
