Former Liverpool Player Andre Wisdom was stabbed multiple times during a robbery in the city.

The 27-year-old defender, who now plays for Derby County, was reportedly attacked when he went to visit a family member on Saturday evening.

Wisdom is believed to have been getting out of his car in the Toxteth area when he was approached and knifed more than once.

The attacker then robbed Wisdom before he was rushed to hospital for treatment.

According to BBC Sport, Mr Wisdom is expected to make a full recovery and Merseyside Police are investigating the attack.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Derby County said: "Derby County Football Club can confirm that Andre Wisdom has been the victim of an unprovoked assault and robbery.

"He sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital, where he is in a stable condition.
