With the growth of Manchester city centre happening on a daily basis and the fact that Manchester being the second biggest city in England behind London the need for Close Protection in Manchester is greater than ever. In the past it was Manchester United who had big name stars and fans who travelled around the world who would have needed close protection officers but with Manchester City Football club now becoming a major club in European football they will also need the close protection that United players, directors and VIP fans have been using for years.
In general Manchester is quite rough and if you end up on the wrong side of town or walk down the wrong street you could be in for a little surprise, it is not the safest town in the United Kingdom. In the past a few footballers have had their houses broken into whilst they are playing or away.
Almost one year ago the Darren Fletcher, the Scotland Captain was playing for Manchester United against Inter Milan in Italy when his house in Bowden was broken into and several valuable items were stolen.
A few months after that in July 2009, Federico Macheda the young Italian Under 21 international was also away when they broke into his house and stole several items.
