A safe belonging to Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti, which was burgled from his Blundellsands home last Friday, has been found empty.
Two male burglars stole a safe from a property in Hall Road East, Crosby at around 6.30pm on Friday 12th February.
Police said the safe, which had been forced open, was found dumped in a car park off Runnells Lane, near Masefield Road, in Thornton, on Saturday.
Police did not disclose the contents of the safe or confirm if the Everton boss was at home at the time of the burglary.
There have been no arrests and officers are continuing to appeal for anyone with information to contact them.
A spokesperson said: “The offenders were described as wearing black waterproof clothing, possibly with white writing on, and black balaclavas.
