Chelsea and England defender Reece James has revealed he has been the victim of a burglary in which a number of his winning medals were stolen. The right-back was not at his home at the time on Tuesday, but played for the Blues during their 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League. In a long message on Instagram on Thursday, James confirmed that his Champions League and Super Cup winning medals and Euro 2020 running medal with England had been stolen. He said: “On the evening of September 14, 2021, as I was playing for my club in return for the Champions League, a group of cowardly robbers broke into my house.” They jointly managed to lift a heavy safe containing some personal mine items in their car. James posted four video clips of the robbers on Instagram, insisting that those investigating the crime “locked in” on the perpetrators, adding: “I never store my jewelry in my house, so everyone contained in the safe was mine. Champions League winning medal and Super Cup winning medal and second place medal for Euro 2020. “These medals were won representing Chelsea and England – honors that can never be taken from me, whether I have the physical medals to prove it.” less I appeal to all my Chelsea and England fans to help identify and turn into these low-living people who will never be able to rest easily as the evidence rises against them. “The police, my advisers and Chelsea FC (and many others) are all behind me as we have firm clues as to who the perpetrators are. We are locking them in.” Luckily no one was present during the break, but I want to let you all know that I’m fine and well. “I really appreciate having the platform to tell you all about my misfortune, and I hope that together we can capture these people and deliver justice where it is due.” Australian Associated Press
