Gerrard Robbed During Champions League Match
Associated Press, December 12th, 2007 5:46PM

MOST COMMENTED

Steven Gerrard's house was burglarized Tuesday night while Liverpool was in Marseilles, safely securing passage into the second round of the Champions League. According to the police report, four men broke into his house, confronted his wife and another woman at the house, and then stole some jewelry. Meanwhile, the Liverpool captain led his team to a resounding 4-0 win over Marseille; Gerrard scored the team's first goal from a rebound after his penalty kick was saved in the fourth minute.

There's a definite pattern developing here: an astonishing six Liverpool players have had their houses robbed in the last 18 months, usually while they're playing matches outside of Britain. They are: former goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek, current goalkeeper Pepe Reina, strikers Peter Crouch and Dirk Kuyt, defender Daniel Agger, and now, Gerrard, Liverpool's captain.

"Four men, wearing dark clothing, hoods and balaclavas, entered the property and stole items of jewelry," Merseyside Police said. "The female resident, and another woman who was in the house at the time, were left shaken but uninjured."
