Who is the latest Liverpool player to have his home targeted?

Jermaine Pennant. Yes the Liverpool midfielder's home was nearly burgled on Monday morning. Pennant's house on Hale Road, Cheshire was targeted by burglars and thankfully for Jermaine they failed to brake through the gates outside his home.

It is now understood that the gates outside Pennant's house were damaged in the incident and Cheshire Police released the following statement : "At 1.40am on 1 December police were informed of an incident of criminal damage at a property on Hale Road, Hale, Widnes."

The 25-year old is not the only Liverpool player to have his home targeted in recent months. Lucas Leiva, Dan Agger, Jose Pepe Reina, Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane have all had their homes burgled in the past 12 months.

This is obviously awful news for Jermaine and his family. Pennant has found it hard this season to get into Rafa Benitez' plans and this can not help. The former England under-21 international has been linked with a January move away from the club and this latest incident may just convince Pennant to leave the club.
