Burgled house and a ticket ; Coutinho has had a terrible day.

Spanish paper Sport claim Philippe Coutinho’s house was burgled on Monday evening while he was out for dinner.

The Barcelona star, who stayed in Catalonia while the remainder of the squad were in London for their Champions League tie with Chelsea, is understood to have returned to his home around 1.30am on Tuesday morning to find his new abode had been broken in to.

The Brazilian, who signed for Barca from Liverpool for £142million last month, also saw his Audi car towed away by the authorities on Monday in what was a miserable 24 hours for the midfielder.

Ongoing construction work on his house apparently made it easier for the thieves to gain access to the property.

Coutinho, who had the property recommended to him by former team-mate Luis Suarez, immediately reported the matter to police upon his return.

The Mossos d’Esquadra came around to take a look and analysed the scene to look for clues.

Coutinho is ineligible to play for Barcelona in the Champions League having featured for the Reds during the group phase last year.

Coutinho’s car was towed away after he parked it in a loading bay whilst visiting the Sagrada Familia.
