They Stole My Champions League Medal - Chelsea Player Cries On Social Media

Chelsea defender and academy product, Reece James has taken to social media to rant about how a group of coward boys raided his house to steal his champions league medal, super cup medal and the silver medal won at the just ended European Championship.

Reece James who was involved in the champions league match on Tuesday against Zenit St. Petersburg played full 90 minutes to help the team win by a lone goal courtesy a header by Romelu Lukaku.

According to Reece James, the robbery of his house happened around the time when the match was in progress and there was no one in the house during the time of the robbery. The defender has therefore called on the public and Chelsea fans to help retrieve the medals and further the arrest of these criminals.

See full statement below.

He has however assured fans that he is well and that the police and Chelsea team are seriously assisting with investigations.

Footballers have been under constant attack from armed robbers and Reece James is the latest on the list. Last season, PSG player Marquinhos and Di Maria complained of being attacked by robbers.

How do you think this problem can be solved?
