More details are starting to emerge about Dele Alli’s house being the scene of criminal activity on Wednesday morning, with The Telegraph revealing that the two intruders got past a security guard to break into the premises.
The intruders are said to have taken jewellery and three watches worth around £350,000 before fleeing the midfielder’s residence (Daily Mail).
The 24-year-old is reportedly being supported round the clock by a player liaison officer from the club following the traumatic incident during the early hours of Wednesday.
Dele has revealed the make and models of the watch that were stolen to his Premier League friends, who have passed on the information to their watch dealers to make it difficult for the culprits to sell them (The Sun).
The Telegraph have claimed that the two men evaded Dele’s security guard who stays on the premises during the night. It is unclear why the guard was not aware of them breaking in.
The Sun revealed that Dele was awake and playing pool downstairs when the intruders broke in at 12.30 am.
A source is quoted as saying: “The group have all been left extremely shaken.
“Dele was still awake and playing pool with the others when the raiders got into the property.
“It all kicked off downstairs and Dele was punched in the mouth by one of the two masked robbers.”

After this incident and the break-in at Vertonghen’s home a few months ago, all players will likely install security guards at their residence if they haven’t already. Perhaps they should follow Hugo’s lead and buy an elite personal protection dog to keep themselves safe.
