Reece James has asked the football community for help in identifying the individuals responsible for stealing a safe from his home, which contained his Champions League and Euro 2020 medals, reports

The Chelsea full-back confirmed on his Instagram account that his house was burgled on September 14, while he was away with the Blues for their match against Zenit St Petersburg.

Four CCTV clips were also released alongside the social media post, with James pleading for assistance in identifying those involved.

James has confirmed that his home was broken into and a safe stolen while he was away representing Chelsea in their 1-0 Champions League win over Zenit on Tuesday night.

The safe contained the England defender’s Champions League and UEFA Super Cup winners’ medals, as well as his European Championship runners-up medal.

The 21-year-old also included four clips of footage from CCTV cameras positioned around the outside of his home, which show the individuals before and after they gained access to the player’s home.

In a message posted on his Instagram account, James wrote:

“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.

“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.

“The police, my advisers and Chelsea FC (and many others) are all behind me as we have firm leads on 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 misfortune and I hope together we can catch these individuals and deliver justice where it is due.”
