Ajax Amsterdam forward Ryan Babel's house was robbed while he was playing a match this weekend, the player said in a Twitter posting on Sunday.

The thieves robbed the house on Saturday, taking an Audi RS3 belonging to the player, who asked for help in getting his vehicle back.

Babel is offering a reward of 10,000 euros ($12,819) to anyone who helps find the vehicle.

"It happened during our match, the thieves knew nobody was home," Babel said.

The forward did not have a good night, with his team losing to Vitesse 2-0 while his house was being robbed. EFE
