The Roma defender missed his side’s Europa League quarter-final tie against Ajax on Thursday as he was recovering from knee discomfort.

According to Italian news agency Ansa, three men entered the home in the Appia area just outside of the capital after removing a grating from the window of the player’s bedroom.

They then forced him to open the safe at gunpoint, taking away three Rolex watches, jewellery and around 300 euros in cash.

Smalling’s family members were also present during the robbery, with his wife calling the police at around 5am.
