After Grealish spoke of his ordeal, some of the stars consulted architects about panic rooms.
Now, The Mirror reports that WAGs have been warned not to show off expensive jewellery and avoid giving potential thieves targets with houses set to be empty more often than not during the European Championship in Germany.
“They’ve been reminded of the previous educational sessions which they have had on security,” said a source.
“The dos and don’ts.
“Don’t advertise jewellery, display it online or post images inside or outside of their homes.”
The Euros will take place this summer, running from June 14 to July 14 in Germany.
A large group of ‘WAGS’, including Fern Maguire, 28, wife of Man Utd defender Harry, and keeper Jordan Pickford‘s wife Megan Davison, 27, are set to travel to Germany.
The WAGs have been given a security update, and have access to an online document which offers advice ahead of the tournament.
Manchester United star Victor Lindelof already has a panic room, used by his wife and children when their home was targeted.
Joelinton was the latest footballer to be targeted by robbers after a spate of terrifying raids at stars’ homes across the country.
