HARRY Maguire and other footballers will take bodyguards with them on holiday after the star’s court drama in Greece.
We can reveal that several Premier League stars have contacted specialist firms in the past week.
A source said: “A lot of the lads have contacted security firms after seeing what happened to Harry.”
Speaking in his BBC interview, he said: “Security is probably something that I need to look into.
“I don’t want to do it – I don’t want security coming away with me.
“But in the current climate and situation I find myself in, would it have helped – yeah for sure.”
Yesterday one firm, which provides security for dozens of stars, said demand has gone “through the roof” since Maguire’s dramatic arrest.
The bodyguards, who often include former SAS soldiers and ex-policemen, travel with players and watch them around the clock.
Many even fit panic alarms and CCTV cameras in the players’ rooms to ensure they can immediately react if they are targeted by local gangs or criminals.
Last week Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney admitted he had used bodyguards.
And ex-England goalkeeper Rob Green said it was inevitable players would pay for protection in the future.
