Chelsea defender, Reece James has taken to his Instagram page to disclose that, a group of robbers broke into his house and stole UEFA Champions League and Super Cup winner’s medals as well as the Euro 2020 runner-up medals.
This incident happened on September 14, 2021 when he was playing for his club (Chelsea) in the return of the Champion League.
Reece James in the post shared said;
“The robberies managed to lift a heavy safe containing some personal items of his into their car.
He also said he doesn’t keep jewelry of his in his house so all that was contained in the safe were my Champions League winner’s medal and Super Cup winner’s medal and the runners up medal for the Euro 2020.
These medals were won representing Chelsea and England – honours that can never be taken away from me whether or not I have the physical medals to prove it.
Nevertheless, he’s appealing to all Chelsea and England fans to help identify and turn in these low life individuals who will never be able to rest easy as the evidence in mounting against them.
The police, my advisers and Chelsea FC (and many others) are all behind me as we have firm leads to who the perpetrators are.
We are closing in on them. Luckily, no one was present during the break in but I want to let all of you know I am safe and well.
I really do appreciate having the platform to tell you all about my misfortunes and I hope together we can teach these individuals and deliver justice where it is due”.
