One of the heroes from last night's magnificent win over Chelsea in the Champions League returned home to a traumatic sight. Goalkeeper Pepe Reina had saved two of the three penalties he'd faced in the shoot-outs, as well as important saves in open play, but whilst doing that his house was being burgled.
The players celebrated into the early hours and when the 24-year-old arrived home he found his home was ransacked. They stole his car – a grey Porsche Cayenne – and other items. The car was found burnt out at 6.30am today, but the missing jewellery, paperwork and a Bang and Olufsen stereo have not yet been recovered.
The burglary, in Woolton, took place between 7pm and 12.45am last night. Reina was not feeling up to commenting on the incident.
