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.
Investigations are now underway to help tracking the hoodlums who perpetrated the act .
