Kurt Zouma, Jack Grealish and many more – The concerning case of thievery in the Premier League

Even though the Premier League boasts some of the best teams in Europe, it isn’t without its faults. It is no rarity that the luxurious homes and mansions of players are robbed and ransacked, especially while they are on duty and not at home. Several similar cases have occurred, ranging from Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Victor Lindelof and João Cancelo.

As a result, footballers have adopted extreme security measures to safeguard their homes from this unsettling ‘trend’ of events occurring all over Europe. As for the Premier League, players have taken to acquiring guard dogs, geofences (invisible sensors), private security staff, and built-in panic rooms. These ‘rooms’ will have separate phone lines and alarm systems.

It was only weeks ago that Kurt Zouma and his family were subject to a terrifying robbery. This, however, occurred while he was at home with his family as the robbers stole £100K in cash and jewelry. In contrast to this incident, robbers strategically plan their attacks when the players are away on club/international duty or vacation. This ends up in the players’ families being subject to terrible situations, often being bound and tied up. Such cases have also been observed in Ligue 1 and Spain.
