Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has vowed to offer a £30,000 reward for the return of his dog, which he says was stolen during a break-in at his house in Los Angeles.
The former Liverpool striker even shared the address of his mansion in a desperate, expletive-riddled plea – calling for the return of his dog.
Sturridge, 29, uploaded a series of Instagram videos from his Los Angeles house which was burgled last night. He shared his address, CCTV footage of the kidnappers entering the mansion as well as pictures of his dog, which is worth up to £4000.
The striker – on a £120,000-a-week contract before leaving Liverpool this summer – revealed that a few bags had been stolen by the burglars.
But the loss of the favourite pet was what hit him the most. Sturridge said he would move out of his mansion immediately. But he pleaded with the kidnappers to come back “if they wanted to make money”.
And the former Reds star offered them a hefty reward for returning his beloved pooch. Sturridge said:
“I will pay anything for the dog,” he said. “Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand, 30 grand, whatever.”
“Bring my dog back to this house, I’m moving out of this b**** anyway, I don’t give a s*** about this place.
“Bring the dog back to this address, I’ll be moving out tomorrow or the next day. I want my dog back and I’ll pay whatever.
“You ain’t going to get more than that anyway. And if you are let me know and I’ll pay more than them. I’ll pay more than them.”
Sturridge also posted four images of the dog – who has his own Instagram account – and also uploaded CCTV footage of three hooded men. He says the dog went missing while he was out of the house for two hours on Monday night.
Sturridge told followers:
“Whoever knows who broke into my crib, I’ll pay you anything. I’m dead serious. “I’ll pay whatever – it doesn’t matter the cost.”
