Angel di Maria has been the victim of thieves since moving to England…
Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has told teammate Angel di Maria that he should hire a Gurkha after a recent break in, reports The Sun.
The Argentine international moved to England in the summer for a club record £59.7 million transfer fee, but has since been the victim of an armed gang. He is currently hiding out in a Manchester hotel, having not lived in house since it was targeted.
His skipper and former United player Wes Brown hired one of the famed Nepalese soldiers to guard their homes after a spate of burglaries in 2009. Since then they have had no trouble involving their homes.
A Sun source said, “Angel’s wife Jorgelina has been left terrified by the attack and won’t go back to the rented house in Cheshire.
They continued, “Wayne has suggested a Gurkha like the one who protects his and Wes Brown’s places. Their guy has had a decorated career in the Army and no one dares go anywhere near the houses.”
It would certainly be an extreme measure to hire one of the fearsome fighters. The soldiers have been a part of the British army since 1857 and have one of the toughest training regimes in the world.
