Former Liverpool and current Derby County defender Andre Wisdom is recovering in hospital after being stabbed during a robbery attempt.
Wisdom was attacked in Toxeth while visiting family, having featured for Derby on Saturday in a 2-1 win over Reading.
The defender is currently recovering in hospital, with Derby confirming that Wisdom sustained injuries during the attack.
“Andre Wisdom has been the victim of an unprovoked assault and robbery,” the club said in a statement.
“He sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital.”
Wisdom originally joined Liverpool in 2008 at age 14, having previously come up through the Bradford City youth system.
The defender made his Liverpool debut in 2012, going on to appear 19 times while scoring one goal under Brendan Rodgers in his first senior campaign.
That goal came on his debut, a 5-3 Europa League win over Young Boys, with Wisdom earning further first-team appearances in the following weeks, including an appearance in the Merseyside derby against Everton in October 2012.
