In a concerning trend affecting Serie A footballers, Lazio's Mattia Zaccagni has become the latest victim of a high-profile robbery.
The Italian international's luxury apartment in Rome was targeted by thieves, resulting in the loss of valuable possessions.
Zaccagni and his wife, Chiara Nasti, were not at home when the robbers struck. The criminals managed to steal jewelry worth approximately €70,000, along with designer handbags and other valuables. The theft occurred shortly after Zaccagni left his apartment; upon returning an hour later, he discovered the break-in. The robbers had forcibly opened a window on the first floor, and the apartment's alarm system was not activated at the time.
This incident is part of a worrying pattern involving Serie A players, with others like Chris Smalling, Piotr Zieliński, and Moise Kean having faced similar situations. The frequency of these robberies raises questions about the safety and security measures in place for high-profile athletes in Italy.
The robbery at Zaccagni's residence is not just a personal violation but also highlights a broader issue of security for footballers in Serie A. The repeated instances of such crimes suggest a targeted pattern, potentially exploiting the public knowledge of players' schedules and whereabouts. This incident underscores the need for enhanced security measures and awareness among professional athletes, especially in high-risk areas.
The football community and fans alike are left concerned and sympathetic towards Zaccagni and his family, hoping for a swift resolution and increased safety measures for athletes in the future.
