Chelsea and England footballer Reece James has revealed CCTV footage of thieves breaking into his home. Watch below:
The thugs are said to have stole the 21-year-old's medals after entering his home on Tuesday (14 September).
James shared the clip on his Instagram today (16 September) with the caption: "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 footage shows the masked men lifting a massive safe out of the driveway and finding it difficult to get through the electric gates.
James added: "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."
Former Chelsea captain John Terry commented: "Hope you get them all back mate!"
Whilst former teammate Tammy Abraham simply wrote: "Disgraceful."
Another user added: "Awful news bro. Hope you find them."
Others were issuing their support and someone else wrote: "Head up ma boy."
