Reece James Posts Footage Of Robbers Stealing Champions League, Super Cup And Euro 2020 Medals
| Last updated
Reece James has confirmed that a safe containing his Champions League winners medal was stolen while he was playing at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.
The 21-year-old uploaded CCTV footage to social media showing the disgraceful moment when his Champions League, Super Cup and Euro 2020 medals were stolen from his house.
The callous thieves stole the prestigious and one-of-a-kind medals while the Chelsea and England right-back was playing in the Blues' Champions League tie against Zenit St Petersburg.
In an attempt to regain these once in a lifetime objects, the defender took to instagram to beg for help from the public.
“On the evening of the 14th of September 2021 when I was playing for my club in the return of the Champions League, a group of cowardly robbers broke into my house,” James wrote.
“They managed to collectively lift a heavy safe containing some personal items of mine into their car.
"I never keep any jewellery of mine in my house so all that was contained in the safe were my Champions League winners medal and Super Cup winners 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, I am appealing to all my 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 is mounting against them."
James played a key role as the Blues were crowned champions of Europe last season before helping the Three Lions reach the final of Euro 2020, where they were beaten by Italy.
One month later, James was part of the Chelsea squad that beat Villarreal in the Super Cup final.
