Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi’s house was burgled and €100,000 worth of items stolen. The 43-year-old FIFA official saw his home in Soffiano, near Florence, attacked by well-organised thieves.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the gang actually knocked a safe out of the wall. They made off with jewellery and other items worth in the region of €100,000. It’s believed the thieves first broke into the house next door and used that to gain entry to Rocchi’s home. He has officiated six games this season in all competitions, including Monaco’s 2-1 Champions League victory at Tottenham and the World Cup qualifier between Poland and Denmark.
