Albanian man, 23, appears in court accused of burgling Raheem Sterling’s £7million mansion and stealing £300,000 of jewellery and watches while the footballer was representing England at the Qatar World Cup
- Emiliano Krosi, 23, allegedly robbed the Chelsea striker’s £7m home in Surrey
A man appeared in court accused of burgling footballer Raheem Sterling’s luxury mansion while he was representing England at the World Cup.
Emiliano Krosi, 23, is alleged to have taken part in 33 burglaries including robbing the Chelsea striker’s £7 million home in Oxshott, Surrey, in December last year.
Jewellery and watches worth £300,000 were stolen in the raid.
Sterling, 28, flew home just hours before England’s crucial clash with Senegal in Qatar last year.
The striker was interviewed by detectives investigating the burglary before returning the England squad for the quarter-final match against France, which they lost.

Albanian Krosi, from Southend-on-Sea, Essex, had arrived at court late after the prison van transporting the defendant from HMP Wandsworth broke down.
Krosi, who had crew-cut hair and thick black stubble, did not enter a plea during the short case-management hearing at Guildford Crown Court this morning.
He spoke only to confirm his name via an Albanian language interpreter. He was represented by defence barrister Graham Blower.
Prosecuting Counsel Laurence Imrie was given until 6th October to serve all the CPS evidence to the defence.
The case was adjourned and a ten-day trial before His Honour Judge Rufus Taylor was set for February next year.
