This time its an Everton centre back who is target of vicious raid!
Everton defender Phil Jagielka was held at knifepoint and forced to hand over jewellery in a raid on his Cheshire home. It is suspected the daft robbers struck at 8pm last night because they thought the player would be on Carling Cup duty against Hull, but they were not up-to-date with their team news.
Jagielka was at home resting an injury when the robbers struck at his £2 million mansion in Mere.
The raiders threatened Jagielka with a knife and forced him to hand over jewellery, including Rolex watches, and the keys to his Range Rover, which was later found abandoned nearby. Jagielka was not injured during the incident.
The raid follows similar break-ins at the homes of Steven Gerrard, Federico Macheda, Roque Santa Cruz, Darren Fletcher, Dirk Kuyt, Pepe Reina, Jerzy Dudek, Daniel Agger, Peter Crouch and Florent Sinama-Pongolle. (Off the Post)
This is quite scary. The article above seems to suggest the robbers believed Jagielka to be off on playing duty but perhaps they felt it easier to attack a player who they knew to be injured and therefore less likely to attempt to fight off potential attackers? Where’s Duncan Ferguson when you need him! Maybe the former Toffees forward could open his own security firm where he simply positions himself at a potential targets house and waits by the door for the offenders to arrive whilst holding a very large stick?
