The smile he had this Sunday at the imminent summons by Gerardo Martino to represent Mexico in the national team quickly faded from Rogelio Funes Mori. It's that at night hours that same day, a group of criminals entered his home in Monterrey and assaulted him in a very violent way.

Crime doesn't give truce both in Monterrey and in all of Mexico. In the news and media it's very normal to see and read about robberies. And in the last hours the victim was the forward that shines in Rayados. According to information sources, the Argentine attacker was subdued in a room with his family. The assailants took jewelry and cash, fortunately they didn't injure anyone.

"A group of assailants entered the home of Rogelio Funes Mori on Sunday night, fortunately the family and Melli are out of danger. The assailants stole jewelry and some of the family's belongings", Sergio Treviño highlighted on his official Twitter account , like a lot of media.

Surely, this will generate concern in La Pandilla for the performance that Melli can achieve on the field of play.It should be noted that the forward is going through a great football moment, being one of the top scorers of the Guard1anes 2021 tournament. further afield, in the last match, Funes Mori scored the two goals of the victory, where those led by Javier Aguirre beat Querétaro 2-1 and placed third in the standings.
