Roberto Firmino: Banned from driving

Roberto Firmino reportedly had to be moved to a hotel safehouse after a hooded gang broke in and stole £70k in jewellery and clothes.

According to The Sun, the Brazilian international is the latest player to fall victim to a targeted attack after having his house watched for several days.

Burglars are said to have initially failed with their first attempt to break-in, but waited until 25- year-old and the rest of his family left the property before launching their planned operation.

Anfield officials ordered Firmino to not return home amid safety concerns and were moved to a hotel over Christmas whilst upgrades were made to his security system at the family home.

A Sun source said: “These guys had been waiting for some time before making their move.

“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.”
