Roberto Firmino targeted by hooded gang who stole £70k worth of jewellery

Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino has been the victim of a burglary at his Merseyside home.

A hooded gang, according to The Sun, monitored the Brazilian’s home for days before pouncing when he left the house with his wife and two children.

It is believed up to £70,000 worth of possessions were ransacked from the Victorian property, including jewellery, watches and clothes.

The gang are also thought to have attempted a previous heist before but been disturbed.

Firmino, his wife Larissa and their two small children were moved into a hotel in Liverpool with a security team in charge of protecting them at home.

A source told The Sun: “They’d obviously been watching Roberto come and go, then swooped in.

“It’s thought they are the same guys who were disturbed mid-burglary on a previous occasion.

“He was obviously shaken up as he has a young family, so the club had him in a hotel before giving him security at the house.”

Firmino has six goals and three assists for Liverpool in the Premier League this season.
