Burglars target Newcastle striker Alexander Isak’s mansion, stealing car – Football – Sport – Express.co.uk

Alexander Isak’s Northumberland home was reportedly targeted by burglars earlier this week. The Newcastle United striker’s car was stolen and later abandoned only three miles from where it was taken. Isak is the latest Premier League footballer to fall victim to ‘away day gangs’, who target players when they are away for matches.

One of Isak’s teammates, Joelinton, who lives a mile down the road, had his house burgled three months ago. Police are investigating the robbery and its possible connection to Isak’s misfortune. According to The Sun, a gang targeted Isak’s house two days before the Magpies’ trip to Fulham last Saturday.

Isak played the full 90 minutes in that match as Newcastle won 1-0. It is unclear whether Isak or his family were at home during the incident, and details of what was taken have been kept under wraps, aside from the abandoned car. Burglars are said to have gained entry through the rear patio doors, and the local police were alerted to the incident at around 10pm on Thursday evening.

This burglary is the latest in a series of similar incidents involving Premier League footballers. Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, Victor Lindelof, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have all been affected by recent burglaries. Isak, who was born in Sweden, moved to England in the summer of 2022 to play for Newcastle.

Since his move, he has been an impressive performer, scoring 29 goals in 59 matches for the Magpies, including 19 in all competitions this season. Prior to the Fulham match, in-form Isak had scored five times in his last five games.
