Regardless of what he does for a living or who he plays for. No one deserves this. They should feel safe in their own home. Joao Cancelo ?? Hope he’s okay, this is sad. This is very terrible, there are no words to describe all the horror and fear, in the attack and robbery that I myself experienced in August for me ManCity became the salvation of my soul, there are many shocks, and the year is coming to an end, but we will definitely cope I cant believe it. I hope they catch them and give them a hefty sentence. We are all with you Joao.????????????????????????
Unfortunately, Cancelo's partner Daniela and his baby daughter Alicia were also in the house when the ordeal took place at their Manchester residence. The Man City fullback also posted a picture of himself on Instagram where his facial wounds from the attack were on full display.
