Chelsea right-back Reece James has stated that a burglary at his home on Tuesday night resulted in the theft of a safe containing his Champions League winners medal. The 21-year-old has had an excellent few months on the football, winning the Champions League and Super Cup with Chelsea and finishing second in the Euro 2020 qualifying tournament for England. Unfortunately, James revealed on Instagram that all three were stolen by criminals while he was playing at Stamford Bridge against Zenit St Petersburg on Tuesday.
"A group of cowardly thieves [burglars] stormed into my residence on the evening of September 14, 2021, while I was playing for my club in the return of the Champions League," he claimed. "They managed to move a hefty safe containing some of my personal belongings into their automobile as a group."
"I never keep any of my jewelry in my residence, therefore all that was in the safe were my Champions League and Super Cup winners medals, as well as the Euro 2020 runners-up medal." These medals were gained on behalf of Chelsea and England, and they are honors that I will never lose, regardless of whether I have the tangible medals to prove it.
"However, I am asking to all of my Chelsea and England supporters to assist in identifying and apprehending these lowlifes who will never be able to rest easy as the evidence mounts against them." We have solid leads on who the offenders are, so the police, my advisers, and Chelsea FC (among others) are all behind me. We're getting closer to them.
"Fortunately, no one was there at the time of the break-in, but I want to assure you that I am safe and sound." I'm grateful for the opportunity to tell you about my misfortune, and I hope that by working together, we can catch these criminals and bring them to justice."
James played well on the right side of Chelsea's midfield during the game against Zenit, which was won thanks to a header from star man Romelu Lukaku midway through the second half. Chelsea are now second in Group H, one point behind leaders Juventus after the Serie A side thrashed Malmo 3-0.
