Marseille spend €800,000 on the security of Ayew, et al

The French side are spending a whopping amount of money on the security of their players after a series of robberies in recent times

Olympique Marseille spend between €600,000 and €800,000 per year to protect their players against burglaries.

According to Europe 1, OM have hired agents of a private security company that perform round surveillance around each player every half hour.

Over a year ago, four Marseille players - Lucho Gonzalez of Argentina, Ghanaians Jordan and Andre Ayew and Brazilian Vitorino Hilton - were victims of theft.

Just three months ago, striker Andre-Pierre Gignac had items including motor cycles, quads, cassis and buggies stolen from his home.

The private security company will help to protect the players and their assets.
