A police horse sat on football ace Dirk Kuyt’s car last night and smashed his wing mirror.
The Liverpool star saw his motor damaged after parking near Anfield before his club’s 3-1 win over Napoli.
A source said: “The mounted officer had been helping patrol a group of Italian fans when the horse suddenly took a few steps back and ended up damaging Dirk Kuyt’s car.
“The police officer was very apologetic.”
Injured Dutchman Kuyt, 30, was commentating on the Europa League clash for Channel 5 and later told viewers: “A police horse just sat on my car”.
Before the game, about 40 Liverpool fans tried to attack Napoli supporters.
The mob turned up at a pub with crowbars but were foiled by police.
Two weeks ago, three travelling Liverpool fans were stabbed in Naples.
