Thanks to their large salaries, football players can afford the ultimate luxuries in life, such as sprawling homes, cars, and expensive jewelry.

However, this makes them easy prey for opportunist thieves, who will steal anything valuable.

Kyle Walker of Manchester City beefed up his security detail by purchasing a doberman from Chaperone K9, a guard dog specialist, for £40,000.

Last year, Dele Alli was the victim of a robbery in which two burglars broke into his North London home, assaulted him, and fled with a £150,000 Richard Mille 11-03, a £150,000 Patek Philippe 5980 Nautilus, and a £50,000 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak chrono.

Then, in 2019, ex-Arsenal teammates Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were pursued by a moped gang who attempted to carjack the German playmaker’s Mercedes G-Wagon as they drove down a North London road.

Sadio Mane, a Liverpool forward, was burgled while on Champions League duty with the Reds, who were playing Bayern Munich away.

While the Senegalese forward was torturing the Bavarians, burglars broke into his mansion and stole items such as cell phones, car keys, and designer watches.

But what precautions do footballers take to ensure their safety?

Dele tried to make his timepieces too hot to handle after they were stolen, and he circulated the brands and models.

And his football buddies said they’d tell their watchmakers about the thefts in the hopes of catching the crooks.

“These robbers may think they’ve hit the jackpot by stealing these watches, but they’re going to have a lot of trouble cashing them in,” a source told The Sun at the time.

“Footballers only deal with a few dealers, and none of them will touch a stolen watch because they know it will cause serious problems later.”

“When passengers pass through security in Dubai and Italy, cops frequently demand to see papers for watches.”

“Can you imagine a watch stolen during a violent robbery ending up on the wrist of a player who is then arrested?”

“Dele has a lot of connections through the England team and knows a lot of players in Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool, and London, where all the big dealers are.”

“These dealers know that if they buy a watch that turns out to be one of Dele’s, they will never sell to another footballer.”

Footballers have been installing bulletproof panic rooms inside their opulent homes as part of a recent trend.

They range in price from £40,000 to £1 million and provide a safe haven for families at home in the event of a break-in.
