USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie broke into his house on Wednesday during Coventa Italia’s quarter-final win against SPAL in Juventus, the Italian team confirmed to ESPN.
The thieves could leave with branded shoes and clothing as well as several other valuables.
Given the timing, the initial outlook is that the heist was planned with the knowledge that McKennie would be playing for Juventus at that point. He alerted authorities the following day when he returned home and forensic police were searching the rooms for potential DNA.

McKennie spent most of the 4-0 win over SPAL on the bench, where he was introduced as a substitute for Nicolo Fagioli in the 87th minute.
The 22-year-old has made an impressive start at Juve since he was loaned from Schalke in the summer.
He has played 21 games in all competitions and scored four goals – three of them in a derby win against Turin and away wins against Barcelona and Serie A leaders AC Milan.
Juve are seven points behind Milan with one game in hand, while against Inter Milan they have a Coppa Italia semi-final and a Champions League round of 16 against FC Porto.
