According to BBC, the incident happened at Mane’s house in south Liverpool between 18:00 and 23:45 local time on Tuesday night, while the player was at Anfield.

No other person was at his property at the time and expensive items such as watches, mobile phones and car keys were stolen.

"We are appealing for anyone with information in relation to this burglary to please come forward and assist our inquiries," Detective Inspector Phil Mahon, of Merseyside Police told BBC.

"While the occupants were not present at the time of the incident this will no doubt be a distressing experience for them and I would ask the offenders to do the right thing and return the stolen items to the owner in any way possible.

"We know the watches in particular are of significant monetary value and I would also like to appeal to anyone who might have been offered the items for sale since the burglary to contact police."

It is not the first time that the Senegal international’s house was burgled, as he already experienced a similar incident in November 2017, while he was at Anfield for an UCL clash against Maribor.

Mane is also the second well-known African footballer whose house was broken into this week, after Kevin-Prince Boateng’s place was also ransacked over the weekend.
