Police are investigating a burglary at the home of Liverpool footballer Sadio Mane while he was on Champions League duty for his team.
Raiders broke into the property in Allerton, south Liverpool, between 6pm and 11.45pm on Tuesday as the Senegal international was at Anfield for the last 16 first leg knockout tie against Bayern Munich.
A number of items including watches, mobile phones and car keys were stolen.
Forensic examinations are being carried out and an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident is ongoing.
Detective Inspector Phil Mahon, of Merseyside Police, said:
Mane, 26, was previously burgled in November 2017 while he was at Anfield for another Champions League game against Maribor.
A gang was thought to have broken into his home first before smashing a patio door at the nearby address of team-mate Dejan Lovren before they fled when a woman shouted she was calling the police.
