The plague of robbery that plagued the lover in Madrid never bothered him. About three years ago, a gang of Albanian thieves beat up their teammates Casemiro and Isco during away matches. The criminals also went looking for cash, watches, jewelry and other valuables from then coach Zinedine Zidane and some Atletico players – they even snatched away the loser’s medal from the Champions League final.

Thibaut Courtois in Madrid does not live in a closed community like that of La Finca, but a little further out in Boadilla del Monte. The villa is fully secured, but he didn’t buy bloodthirsty guard dogs at the height of the intrusions. Then Real Madrid contracted for a while a security company for their players who were watching things from the car day and night. Since his employer was no longer responsible, Courtois sent guards to patrol on his own initiative.

During the match, coach Leonardo informed coach Mauricio Pochettino of the kidnapping of Di Maria’s house – his family was briefly held hostage. Pochettino immediately pulled his player aside and showed him the matter. An alternative for understandable reasons.

At that time, the Tottenham team manager waited until after the final whistle to inform Vertonghen. A television camera captured the scene. A sad-hearted red devil was given courage by coach Jose Mourinho after a traumatic experience for his wife and two children (watch the video below). The thieves threatened his wife with a machete and asked him about valuables. After a brief raid on the house, they escaped with electronics. Offer his club help.

A few months later, co-worker Dele Alli was hit hard during a house robbery. Thereafter, many top players continued to receive service in England. An alarm in his final days at Man United also chased hackers away from Angel Di Maria’s domain. Chris Smalling is suddenly woken up one night by three thieves. He had to open his safe with jewels. The Dutch league was also stunned by such an incident. Eran ZahavichEindhoven was then told, before kick-off, that his house had been burgled. His family – with young children – is at gunpoint. He later said, “What we witnessed is more than just burglary and theft.” Then forget the accidents. Because Sergio Peña, Nicolas Otamendi, Joao Cancelo, they also had to deal with the theft of the house. The last one is Marco Verratti. Although not in his home, but in a holiday home belonging to Ronaldo, the Brazilian legend. Don’t make the loot less. Three million in cash, jewelry and watches. The trend is still worrying.

Even David Beckham and his wife Victoria left their mansion in London panic room €60,000 – a closed shelter in case of danger.

However, most players don’t go that far in their fear. They rely on high-tech alarm systems and camera surveillance, like Kevin De Bruyne. Others have permanent security guards on their doorstep or buy specially trained guard dogs. Like Marcus Rashford.

With celebrities not choosing a home on a closed street in London, you’ll often spot a car with a security guard in front of the door. For passersby, it can be a bit shocking at night when the lights suddenly come on and the car comes very slowly behind you.

Rodformer shares a video of unwanted visitors:

Rodformer also received unwanted visitors. In the summer of 2020, an attempted burglary occurred at his home in Knokke. On the birthday of his wife Ross, who was abroad at the time. Because the alarm went off in time, nothing was stolen. They did not act professionally, but the timing of the thieves was perfect.

Except for a damaged door, they did not succeed in their intention.
