Former Chelsea, Arsenal defender Ashley Cole has house burgled

Former Chelsea and Arsenal defender Ashley Cole had his house burgled in January.

A Surrey Police spokesperson told ESPN: "Our investigation remains ongoing following an aggravated burglary in Fetcham on Jan. 21.

"Burglars broke in to the property through the rear doors around 9.45 p.m. The suspects searched the property, before escaping with a quantity of jewellery.

"They were described as wearing camouflage clothing, gloves and balaclavas. An investigation is underway and enquiries remain ongoing."

Cole won three Premier League titles with Arsenal and Chelsea during his career and claimed the Champions League with the Blues in 2012.

The defender also made 107 appearances for England and spent two years with MLS side LA Galaxy.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen was also burgled last month during his side's Champions League round-of-16 second leg clash at RB Leipzig.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane was targeted by criminals last year when his house was burgled during a Champions League match against Bayern Munich.

There have also been a number of incidents in Spain over the past year where 19 La Liga players have been affected by break-ins.
