There are certain professions that require close protection services, as their high status can put individuals lives in jeopardy. Therefore, it may come as no surprise that an AC Milan FC footballer has hired a bodyguard.
According to SpyGhana, AC Milan FC has reportedly hired a bodyguard to protect their twenty-five year old player, Kevin-Prince Boateng, due to concerns about his safety. Much apprehension is surrounding the Ghana International player since it was suggested that he led his fellow AC Milan players to abandon a friendly game against minnows Pro Protea due to racist chants from Busto Arsizio fans. The football club and the player are apparently expecting strong reactions from Pro Partia fans after he kicked a ball into the section of the fans who were shouting the racist chants.
Mr Boateng is clearly a very valued member of the club and his health and safety are a top priority at AC Milan. Therefore, it’s essential the football player receives the highest quality protection to ensure he comes to no harm.
Become a Bodyguard with Security Training
Those who dream of becoming a bodyguard to protect those who share a similar status to the AC Milan footballer, should most definitely consider enrolling on a BTEC Level 3 Award in Close Protection Operations. This type of security training course is required to achieve both the highest level of training and an SIA licence to enable you both within the UK and for UK based companies. If your job takes you outside of the UK it is equally as important to demonstrate an effective level of training so your client’s know you are well prepared for any eventuality with this fast paced industry. It’s imperative that a person heads to a respected and experienced company which covers every area of close protection and risk management, such as Wilplan Training.
As well as possibly protecting high status sportsmen, a bodyguard could also provide services for the Military Special Forces, UK Royalty Protection, Commercial Close Protection and Risk Management.
