These kind of high value burglaries on footballers houses are never random it will of been planned out and as stated likely they thought he would be away with the City team leaving them with less resistence.

Biggest worry now is how mentally it affects him everytime he leaves his family and the fear that they may come back.

Horrible situation to be in and shows how despite all their wealth they are just like me and you mentally. He will have the resources to boost security but I can see him upping sticks and moving home to get away from the bad memories. Let's just hope it's another house around here and isn't a signal for him to want to move on altogether.

Seems more like a robbery in a dwelling than a burglary.

As you pointed out it was definitely a planned crime.
Footballers are easy targets for criminal gangs like this, flash watches and jewellery shown on public Instagram accounts, flash cars and custom plates that stick out and are easier to track to the footballer's home.

I remember big Duncan Ferguson putting one "Home Invader" in hospital and the other fleeing for his life after they tried to rob his Lancashire mansion
Wasn't just the once.


Things have changed since Big Duncan's time though, it isn't just local scrotes, smackheads or liverpudlian gangsters.

With the riches of current Premier league footballers (abd recent retirees) they have attracted a different level of professional criminal.

This is the mastermind of the Lampard/Eccleston/deceased Leicester owner burglaries. A man with numerous alliases and a no doubt sophisticated network of organised criminals behind him to fence and launder the proceeds.

It is aggravated burglar no doubt, the burglary part just needs an element of trespass.
