Liverpool midfielder Fabinho’s home was burgled as the footballer celebrated the team’s Premier League win.

Thieves broke into the 26-year-old’s empty house in Formby between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning and stole items of jewellery and a car. The car, an Audi RS6, was later recovered in Wigan. Police said thieves targeted the footballer’s home sometime between 15:00 BST on Wednesday and 04:00 on Thursday. Liverpool lifted the league trophy on Wednesday following a 5-3 victory over Chelsea in their final home game of the season at Anfield. The thrilling affair finally brought an end to Liverpool’s one-month wait to get their hands on the Premier League trophy, the very accolade that has evaded them for almost 30 years. And although the tens of thousands of Liverpool fans that would otherwise have been in attendance had to stay at home, there was still an incredible atmosphere when the celebrations got underway. Sir Kenny Dalglish presented the Premier League trophy to the winners. 

The 26-year-old could be seen posing for photos with fellow Brazilians Roberton Firmino and Alisson Becker and wrote on Instagram: “No words can describe. Living a dream. Champions!” However, what was a celebratory evening in the life of Fabinho turned out to be an incredibly sad one, too, after news emerged that his house had been burgled during the celebrations. Liverpool’s Senegal striker Sadio Mane also had his house burgled while he was playing in a Champions League match against Bayern Munich in February last year.
