Three people were injured in the raid, police said, although it is unclear if the footballer's brothers were hurt.

The offenders escaped in a white Range Rover belonging to one of the victims, and a white BMW 3 Series.

The robbers stole a white Range Rover, which was later found abandoned around two miles away in Fallowfield.

A source said: 'Thankfully they are all going to be OK. They were terrified as the men had a gun.

"We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened or anyone with dashcam footage of the BMW or Range Rover around the time of the incident".
