“I’ll pay you anything” - Former Liverpool and England forward Daniel Sturridge makes emotional appeal after dog is stolen in LA

Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has sent out an impassioned plea and offered a “20 or 30 thousand dollar” reward for the return of his dog after it was allegedly stolen from his Hollywood mansion.

The heartbroken 29-year-old, without a club after being released by the Champions League winners this summer, posted a video to Instagram on Tuesday showing a broken glass door.

He said this was where thieves broke in and made off with a number of bags as well as his precious Pomeranian dog.

Sturridge posted a number of videos and photos to his 3.4 million followers on Instagram after he said his house was broken into.

And the distraught footballer begged for the safe return of pet dog Lucci saying: “Listen whoever knows who broke into my crib, I’ll pay you anything.”

In another video he said: “Whoever brings my dog back 20 grand straight up, straight up, 20gs, 30 gs, whatever, bring my dog back to my house."

He added: “Whatever it costs… you ain’t gonna get more than that anyway and if you are I’ll give you more than them.”

One video appeared to be footage taken from a home security camera that showed three hooded people walking through his home.

Sturridge also revealed bags were taken from the upstairs of his home.

He said: "Something has gotta change, like how can you break into a house in LA and take someone's dog? Are you crazy?

“You've come into a house to take a dog. Somebody please find my dog, I'll pay anything I'm dead serious, I just want my dog back."

In the background of one video someone can be overheard saying the thieves did not take “over $300,000 worth of watches.”

Police in Los Angeles were unable to confirm whether or not the incident had been reported to them.
