Super Eagles striker Brown Ideye and his club Aris Thessaloniki will be nursing a second wound after being knocked out of the UEFA Europa League qualifiers on Thursday by Norwegian club Molde FK.
Aris revealed that they had lost the proceeds from the match after the club’s treasurer Theodoros Karipidis was robbed at his residence on Friday, with the suspects making away with about €246,000 in cash all gotten from the sold-out fixture at the Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium including some of the family’s personal effects, Vanguard says.
Reports from Greece indicate that the treasurer, Karipidis who is the cousin to the owner of the club Theodoros Karipidis – both share the same name – with his wife and his little child were all asleep when the robbers broke in. However, they used a sedative on the family to ensure they remained asleep while they carried out the operation.
Meanwhile, police in Thessaloniki have begun investigations into the robbery with forensic analysis from the crime scene.
Ideye, who joined Aris barely two weeks ago after being a free agent for almost a year, featured in the win but was substituted in extra time. The Gods of War missed the chance to feature in the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League after Molde qualified on goals aggregate.
