Gerrard latest Liverpool player to be burgled

LONDON (Reuters) - Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard suffered a burglary at his home while he was playing in a Champions League game in France on Tuesday night, a police source said.
He is the latest Liverpool player to be burgled while playing a match for his club.
Gerrard's wife Alex Curran was in the house at the time.
Merseyside Police would not confirm it was Gerrard's house, but said they were investigating a confrontational burglary in Formby, Merseyside.
"Officers were called to a house at about 9:30 p.m. last night following a call from a female resident that four men had broken into the house and stolen items of jewellery," a police spokeswoman said on Wednesday.
Curran and another woman, who was in the house at the time, were shaken by the incident, but were not injured.
The men, who were unarmed, wore hoods and balaclavas, the spokeswoman added. It is not clear how they broke in.
Gerrard, who captains Liverpool, was helping his team to a 4-0 victory against Olympique Marseille, a win which secured the club's passage into the last 16 of the Champions League.
Earlier this year, the home of Liverpool's goalkeeper Pepe Reina was burgled as he helped the club reach last season's Champions League final.
Team mates Jerzy Dudek, Daniel Agger, Peter Crouch and Florent Sinama-Pongolle, as well as Everton's Andy van der Meyde, were all burgled last year.
Last month, striker Dirk Kuyt suffered a break in at his luxury home in Woolton while he was on international duty with the Dutch team.
