Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken out the “violent cowards” who perpetrated the terrifying robbery at his family home, as he spoke for the first time since the incident.

Aubameyang is said to have been attacked by a group of four men and threatened with firearms and iron bars in the early hours of Monday morning from his wife Alysha Behague and their two terrified children.

In a social media post, the former Arsenal star confirmed his jaw was “injured” after being struck on the chin with an iron bar, saying his family “no longer felt safe in our own home”.

“Hey guys, thank you so much for all the messages,” he wrote. “On Sunday night, some violent cowards broke into our house and threatened my family and my children, just to steal some things.

“They injured my jaw but I will recover in no time and thank goodness no one else was physically hurt.

“The feeling that we are no longer safe in our own home is difficult to understand and describe, but as a family we will overcome this and be stronger than ever.

‘Thank you for all the support, it really means a lot to us.’

Barcelona has moved Aubameyang and his family to a five-star hotel in the city and offered them psychological counseling after the ordeal.

The thieves escaped with jewelry after Aubameyang was forced to open a safe at the property in Castelldefels, a coastal town south of Barcelona.

Aubameyang, 33, was beaten on the chin with an iron bar while Behague received a blow to the head, but they initially decided not to undergo hospital treatment so as not to further frighten their children.

The children — Curtys, 11, and Pierre, six — saw their parents held on the floor for an hour as the thieves ransacked the house in the early hours of Monday morning.

Catalan news channel ARA reported that police are looking for the attackers and believe they belong to an organized gang of Kosovo Albanians.

The gang apparently guarded Aubameyang’s property while he was in the United States during Barcelona’s pre-season tour.

At that point, they tried unsuccessfully to enter the house, but were deterred by an alarm. However, on this occasion, the alarm was turned off because Aubameyang and his family were at home.

The gang easily climbed over a garden gate to gain entry and took off in a white Audi A3.

Barcelona have advised their players to hire private security for their properties to deter criminals.

However, as Aubameyang is linked with a departure from Barcelona this summer, he had not yet hired anyone to protect his property.

The Barcelona striker may require surgery to repair the reported broken jaw, which is now a complicating factor in a move to Chelsea before Thursday’s deadline.

Talks are underway about the 33-year-old’s move to Stamford Bridge, but no agreement has yet been reached between Barcelona and Chelsea, or any personal terms agreed with the former Arsenal striker.

The Athletic Report that Aubameyang would not be able to play immediately if he signs for Chelsea due to the facial injury.

Aubameyang may need surgery to fix the problem faster than if the jaw were to heal naturally and he is expected to be out for four or five weeks.

However, the matter is not expected to lead to the collapse of the deal with Barcelona, ​​which urgently needs to sell players, and Chelsea, which urgently needs a new striker.

However, a transfer to the West London club cannot be ruled out as negotiations are underway ahead of the 11pm transfer deadline on Thursday evening.

Chelsea’s need for a new striker was underlined when they lost 2-1 to Southampton on Tuesday night.

Gabon international Aubameyang played four and a half seasons at Arsenal, scoring 92 goals in 163 appearances, before moving to Barcelona last February following a spat with manager Mikel Arteta over discipline violations.
