Cardiff City defender Sol Bamba lost a Range Rover, Louis Vuitton bag and a Cartier watch when his home was targeted by thieves, a court has heard.
Mr Bamba, his wife Chloe, and their three children aged five to 12, were away at the time.
Daniel Flynn, 18, pleaded guilty at Cardiff Crown Court to burgling Mr Bamba's property on 27 July last year.
In November, Kyle Harris, 25, of Cardiff, was jailed for two years after admitting his part in the burglary.
Cardiff City were playing a pre-season friendly against OGC Nice on the day of the burglary.
