Liverpool midfielder Fabinho’s house was burgled on Wednesday night as he celebrated his side’s win over Chelsea and Premier League title glory.
Fabinho played the full 90 minutes at Anfield as the Reds downed the Blues 5-3 and then were handed the Premier League trophy for the first time in the club’s history.
However, he was met with horrible news when he returned to his Formby home, from where jewellery and a car had been stolen. His empty home had been targeted and an Audi A6 was stolen, although later recovered in Wigan.
A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: ‘Detectives in Sefton are appealing for information following a burglary in Formby. Police were called to an address in the early hours of this morning (Thursday, 23 July), when the occupants entered their house to find it had been burgled.
‘No-one was in the property at the time of the incident but it was thought the burglary happened sometime between 3pm on Wednesday, 22 July and 4am on Thursday, 23 July. A number of jewellery items were stolen, alongside a grey Audi RS6, which has since been recovered in the Wigan area. The house and car have been forensically examined by Crime Scene Investigators and CCTV enquiries in the area are on-going.’
It is a worrying pattern for Liverpool players, with Sadio Mane’s home targeted during a Champions League clash with Bayern Munich in 2019.
Dejan Lovren and Robeto Firmino are two more current players that have suffered the same fate, while Pepe Reina, Jerzy Dudek and Daniel Agger have been hit in the past.
