England goalkeeper Joe Hart is robbed at petrol station near his club’s training ground


England goalkeeper Joe Hart was travelling home when he was robbed by thieves on mopeds

Joe Hart, England goalkeeper is robbed by thieves on mopeds, who stole his phone, watch and wallet while he filled up at a petrol station near his club’s West Ham training ground.

A gang surrounded the 6ft5in goalkeeper with two mopeds as he got into his car and comes just two weeks after Hart’s £100,000 Range Rover was stolen from outside his home in Cheshire.

The three thieves struck near Romford, Essex, as the 30-year-old footballer was travelling home from the training ground.

The player – who is on loan from Manchester City – is thought to have not long returned from Lithuania with the England World Cup squad when the moped strike took place.

A source told The Sun: ‘Joe wasn’t hurt but he was pretty shaken up. He’s a big powerful guy and it took some nerve to rob him’ and added, ‘…if it can happen to the safest pair of hands in England it can happen to anyone.’ However, if anything, this incident only serves to sadly display how at risk our most exposed players can be, especially from targeted attacks.

The robbery came just 2 weeks after his £100,000 car was stolen from his Cheshire home

Sergio Aguero ‘suffers broken ribs’ in car crash in Amsterdam


Man City striker, Sergio Aguero has been badly injured in a car crash in Amsterdam, just hours after attending a concert. He was reported to be in a taxi on his way back to the airport when the incident occurred. 


City has said, “he was in Holland on his day off and has sustained injuries.”

Expected back in Manchester today, Aguero will be examined by City’s medical team, ahead of the Premier League trip to Chelsea on Saturday.

Police in Amsterdam have since confirmed that 2 people were in a taxi which crashed into the De Boelelaan area of the city.

It is thought that the player is facing the prospect of a substantial lay-off, however, as he has been reported to have suffered fractured ribs. If so, the striker could be facing at least 6 weeks in another huge set-back for City manager Pep Guardiola. 

A source close to Aguero has said the player is ‘Okay’, and we wish him strength and speedy recovery.

Chelsea star Tiemoue Bakayoko, 23, was driving along Blundel Lane near the Cobham facility at around 3.30pm when the crash happened on Thursday afternoon- escaping serious injury.

Police arrived at the scene at 4.40pm and have confirmed that luckily, no other vehicle was involved in the incident. Press pictures reveal the extent of the damage to Bakayoko’s vehicle, with the windscreen shattered and the roof caved in, which was caused when he veered off the road on Blundel Lane near the Blue’s Cobham training base.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time this season that there has been a car accident involving the Blues, as last month, a young fan was run over as he tried to collect autographs outside Cobham training centre.

Premier League footballer Andy Carroll was threatened by ‘two armed men’ in an attempted robbery as he returned home from a training session.

The West Ham striker, 27, was driving his Mercedes G-Wagon back to his home in Essex when he was approached by two men on motorbikes shortly before 1pm on Wednesday.

They claimed to have a firearm and demanded he stop his vehicle.

The Premier League forward sped off and was pursued through the streets, before he turned off at the club’s Rush Green training ground to seek the help of security staff.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed officers responded to a reported attempted robbery at gunpoint in Chigwell, north-east London.

Police were called at around 12.45 on Wednesday, November 2, to reports of two males on motorcycles attempting to rob the driver of a car in Romford Road.

The two men threatened the driver and intimated through gesture that they were in possession of a gun. The motorcyclists attempted to block the car as the driver sought to get away.

The driver of the car – a man aged in his 20s – was able to manoeuvre away and he called police for assistance. The suspects rode off prior to the arrival of police.

The driver of the car was spoken to and an allegation of attempted robbery was recorded.


West Ham manager Slaven Bilic says the player was “very brave” in the situation and was his usual self on Thursday.

He was very brave and came back to the training ground. Thankfully he is good and not in shock. He acted in a brave manner.

He was probably targeted. I don’t think it was a coincidence and he was chased for a long time.

Andy Carroll is good. I just spoke to him about what happened. He is okay.

Whatever he needs or any other player we can provide for them. He is smiling today and is in a good environment now.
