The house was raided right as Jack Grealish was taking part in Man City’s 3-1 win over Everton on Tuesday.

Jack Grealish's mansion was raided for £1million (Ksh.200 million) worth of jewellery by thieves on Wednesday night, according to reports. 

Family of the Manchester City winger - who was playing in his side's 3-1 win against Everton at the time - were reportedly forced to “hit panic buttons” inside the house.

According to The Sun, 10 relatives - including Grealish's fiancée Sasha Attwood, parents, two sisters and brother - were watching the match before being alerted by noises upstairs.

The outlet further claim that the family were forced to run and hide for cover inside the mansion that Grealish only moved into before Christmas. 

Police reported to the scene immediately and even had a helicopter search the area however the offenders were able to escape with Ksh. 200 million  worth of jewellery. 

“They executed their raid when Manchester City were playing live on TV and all his family had gathered downstairs to cheer him on.

“No one was injured but there was a lot of panic. Everyone was terrified as they were all so vulnerable.

“It's an enormous property, so it is understandable why no one heard anything at first. It was also the first time the family had visited so they were unfamiliar with the property.

“When the dogs went mad, and they could hear people creeping about, they pressed the security panic alarm.” 

According to Mail Sport, Grealish did dash down the tunnel at the end of the game against Everton, which looked unusual. 

The England international played the full 90 minutes as Pep Guardiola's side stormed to a victory against the Toffees on Wednesday. 

The incident in Cheshire comes weeks after West Ham star Kurt Zouma and his family were left “traumatised” after an armed gang raided their £3 m (Ksh 600 million)  home and stole £100,000 (Ksh. 20 million) in cash and jewellery. 

The gang of thugs ransacked The Hammers' captain's Essex mansion late on December 2nd while he was relaxing with his wife Sandra and their children. 

Frenchman Zouma, 29, was missing from West Ham's squad as they drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace following the raid - which prompted a warning from cops to neighbours amid fears an organised crime group could strike again. 

News of the ordeal left West Ham fans stunned - with the club offering a £25,000  (Ksh 5 million) reward for information leading to the gang's capture. 

In a statement, the club said: 'West Ham United has offered a £25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and successful prosecution of burglars who broke into defender Kurt Zouma's home on the eve of the Club's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace this weekend.

“Kurt's home was broken into on Saturday while all his family were in the house, leaving everyone present extremely distressed. While thankfully no one was harmed, it was a traumatic experience for the West Ham United defender, his wife and their young family.

“The burglars took items of significant value and of huge personal and sentimental importance to the family.

“The West Ham United family continue to offer Kurt's family their full support.”
