(MENAFN) Police in Cairo are investigating a burglary at the home of Liverpool and Egyptian national team footballer Mohamed Salah. The burglary was reported by a cousin of the football star, who informed the police that cable TV receivers were missing from the house located in the affluent Tagamoaa suburb of Cairo. Upon searching the property, police confirmed the theft of the cable TV receivers on Sunday.
Following this, the police conducted a more thorough examination of the property and discovered that additional items were missing, including sportswear, football boots, and an unspecified trophy. No arrests have yet been made, according to the police, who are now questioning neighbours and potential witnesses and reviewing footage from security cameras in the area.
In their investigation, the police have also found a cooking gas bottle in the house's garden, which was apparently discarded by the burglar as it was too heavy to carry away. A full gas bottle typically weighs around 20 kilograms.
Salah's Cairo home is one of at least two residences that the football star uses when he is in Egypt. His family home, located in his hometown in the Nile Delta region north of Cairo, is another property he owns.
The burglary at Salah's Cairo home has caused concern among his fans and the wider community. The football star is a hugely popular figure in Egypt and around the world, and news of the burglary has sparked sympathy and anger on social media platforms. While the investigation is still ongoing, many are hoping for a swift resolution to the case and for those responsible to be brought to justice.
