"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."
