Maxi Lopez is the latest Serie A footballer to be targeted by thieves in Rome after his Ferrari was stolen from the capital's Fiumicino airport.


A friend of the Argentinian, who will rejoin Catania this season after a spell with Sampdoria, had parked the black Ferrari 599 close to the airport on Friday night, Corriere del Mezzogiorno reported.

The newspaper said the friend, a car salesman, had been using the racing car for several months ahead of possibly buying it.

Meanwhile, Lazio player Mauro Zarate didn’t realise his BMW was stolen in May until it was found in Florence a few weeks later, while Argentinian striker Erik Lamela, who plays for AS Roma, also had personal items stolen in the capital earlier this year.

In 2008, Philippe Mexes, who plays for Milan, had his car stolen, with his two-year-old daughter on board, during a stint with Roma.

Juan Silveira dos Santos, who played for Roma until last year, also had €40,000 worth of goods stolen from his luxury villa in Ostia.
