Former Liverpool Player Andre Wisdom has been Stabbed
Former Liverpool player Andre Wisdom was rushed to hospital after he was stabbed and robbed at Toxteth, Merseyside as he went to visit a relative. It is believed the 27-year-old who now plays for Derby County was stabbed while getting out of his car. According to his sister who is an eye witness, she said: “He’s been stabbed and is in hospital. “He’s stable and my other brother is on his way there. It’s crazy. I can’t believe it.”
A statement from Derby County said: “Andre Wisdom has been the victim of an unprovoked assault and robbery. He sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital.” The attack came hours after the former Liverpool defender Wisdom and his teammates celebrated promotion-chasing Derby’s Saturday’s 2-1 Championship win over Reading.
A source said: “It’s awful news. He must have been on a high after his team played so well. “To then have something like this happen is just tragic. It was totally unprovoked. “It’s impossible to imagine what his family must be going through. “All his fans wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully he’ll be back on the pitch again soon.”
The former Liverpool player was praised by fans after Saturday’s win, in which Derby skipper Wayne Rooney got the winner. One of the fans tweeted saying: “Only one Man of the Match for me what a performance from Andre Wisdom.” Wisdom who moved to Championship club Derby from Liverpool in 2017 after signing for them when he was just 14 is now fighting for his life in the hospital. This is really bad especially with the recent cases of racism in Europe and America since Andre Wisdom is black.
