Barcelona’s Arthur suffers house burglary during Liverpool clash

Barcelona midfielder Arthur suffered a house break in during his side's 3-0 Champions League win at home to Liverpool on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian was named as a substitute by Ernesto Valverde for the visit of the Premier League title challengers in the semi final clash, and he returned home to find his home raided, according to a report in Marca this morning. 

The report confirmed that none of his family members were present during the incident, with his brother watching the game from the stands at the Camp Nou – contrary to earlier incorrect rumours that he had been threatened with a screwdriver, by the thieves. 

Amongst the items reported to have been stolen during the robbery are a designer watch and several items of jewellery. 

The former Gremio man is not the first Barcelona player to have had their house broken into during the 2018-19 season, with international team mate Philippe Coutinho and Kevin-Prince Boateng both having the homes raided whilst playing in matches in the past twelve months.
