Liverpool footballer Roberto Firmino's home was burgled and a €81,000 haul of jewellery, watches and clothes stolen, it has been reported.

Merseyside Police said officers were called shortly after 10pm on Thursday, December 22, to reports of a burglary at the forward's home in Mossley Hill, south Liverpool.

A force spokesman said a group of men forced entry to the house and took watches, jewellery and clothes.

The men, who made off from the scene on foot, were described as wearing hoods and one wore a navy blue Puffa coat.

"I'd like to appeal to the consciences of the offenders and ask them to put themselves in the victim's position," said Detective Inspector Steve Christian.

Hotel

Firmino (25), his wife Larissa, their one-year-old daughter and baby son were reportedly not at home at the time, and moved to a hotel following the incident.

Days after the burglary, the Brazilian was charged with drink-driving in Liverpool city centre on Christmas Eve.
