London: Newcastle United winger Jonas Gutierrez has been left devastated after a treasured collection of football shirts were stolen from his mother’s house in a robbery.
The strips - each one marking a special moment in his career - were stolen from the apartment in Gutierrez’s native country.
The 28-year-old Argentine footballer spoke out on the theft on Twitter in Spanish.
“I will never understand how there are people who act in this way,” the Daily Star quoted Gutierrez as tweeting.
“What is important is that nothing happened to my family - material things come and go,” he wrote.
