Philippe Coutinho had a window smashed on his luxury Porsche as he attended Liverpool’s end-of-season awards ceremony on Tuesday night.

The incident took place outside of Anfield where Coutinho’s Porsche Macan was parked, alongside his team-mates’ cars.

A local photographer located at the ground detailed how a man arrived at the scene to throw a rock at the car, before quickly running away, the Daily Mail reports.

It’s understood a police van then later arrived at the stadium, and a member of staff came outside with the keys to assess the damage as Coutinho stayed inside.

No-one was harmed during the incident and the motives behind the attack remain unclear.

Speaking at the Player of the Season awards ceremony, Coutinho told the crowd: “One day I hope I can win as many trophies for Liverpool as players in the past did.”

Such comments will help to alleviate concerns of a summer transfer away from Anfield after recent reports suggested that Barcelona are poised to offer the club €90m for the player.

Coutinho has shone for Liverpool this season, catching the eye of a number of Europe’s biggest clubs and has repeatedly been linked with a move to Barcelona.
