'Dibu' Martínez wants to avoid being a victim of crime.

‘Dibu’ Martínez bought a $24,000 guard dog to guard his Qatar 2022 World Cup medal

It is a Belgian Shepherd Malinois trained by the English special forces and the United States Navy

The controversial goalkeeper of the Argentina team, Emiliano ‘Dibu’ Martínez, has decided to pay a huge amount of money to buy a guard dog in order to take care of his family and the prizes won at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The British media Daily Star published on Monday that the Aston Villa goalkeeper acquired a Belgian Malinois breed dog, which cost him about $24,000.

This animal is specialized in protection, and that is exactly why he bought it from a certified farm. The main task of the canine will be to guard the Argentine trophies and medals, as well as his family.

Apparently, the 30-kilo dog is trained by the British Special Forces and the United States Navy.

It is worth noting that in recent months, footballers have been targets of crime, and for this reason the ‘Dibu’ has preferred to be cautious.

In fact, several athletes have already resorted to buying trained dogs to safeguard their homes, such as the case of the French goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, the former English player, Ashley Cole, and the boxer Tyson Fury.
