Tottenham Players urged to ensure they have safety measures in place

According to the Express, Tottenham Hotspur players have been urged to review their security measures to ensure the safety of themselves and their families.

This comes following the armed burglary at Spurs star Dele Alli’s London home on Wednesday. The midfielder was punched in the face and has been left shaken by the turn of events. The two armed robbers fled with expensive jewellery and watches.

It is the second time this year that a Tottenham player’s house has been targetted. Jan Vergonthen’s family suffered a similar fate when the player was away with the squad at Leipzig. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in both cases.

Police are verifying if there is any link between both the crimes. They returned to Alli’s residence yesterday to offer the player advice. Dele Alli thanked fans for their support following the incident. No arrests have yet been made as the investigation continues.

Security consultant Alex Bomberg, of Intelligent Protection International, has warned players against flaunting their extravagant possessions.

“You don’t need to show around pictures of your expensive watch – the moment you start doing that, you become a challenge to people.”

Other players including that of other clubs have been purchasing guard dogs. Hugo Lloris was among those who did as he paid £15,000 on a specially trained guard dog just two weeks ago.

In a profession when players are often in the public eye, footballers are easy targets of such crimes. With them at home now due to the shutdown, ensuring a safe home environment becomes imperative.
