Madrid's boots stolen in Munich
Munich police are investigating the theft of several pairs of boots from Real Madrid’s dressing room before Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Bayern.
La Prensa says the robbery is alleged to have taken place before the semi-final first-leg clash at the Allianz Arena, which the Germans won 2-1, with three pairs of boots belonging to Cristiano Ronaldo going missing alongside those of Mesut Ozil; three of Ronaldo’s t-shirts are also believed to have disappeared.
The incidents are said to have taken place as the Real Madrid players warmed up on the pitch, while the changing rooms were not equipped with video cameras despite reports to the contrary and Los Blancos have now registered a complaint with UEFA.
Wolfgang Wenger, a spokesman for the local police force, said the matter is still under investigation.
“We are trying to find anybody who has information about this and we are in contact with Real Madrid,” he said.
