Benitez confirms Liverpool investigating players' security

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has confirmed they're investigating security methods for their players after Steven Gerrard's home invasion this week.

Gerrard became the sixth player to have his house burgled in the past 18 months. The incident, as with the majority of the burglaries, came when Gerrard was playing in an away Champions League fixture, Tuesday's win in Marseille. Gerrard's wife, Alex Curran, was confronted by masked intruders at their £3m home on Merseyside and Liverpool are in discussions over improving security at their players' residences while they are involved in games.

"We are trying to find a solution now," Benitez said. "Gerrard must be worried about what happened but he has been training normally. We are talking with security companies and the police to see if we can find a solution."
