Former Chelsea star sued over dog

There are reports that ex-England and Chelsea star Daniel Sturridge is being sued by a man who found his stolen dog in Los Angeles two years ago.

Sturridge made a plea on social media after his beloved Pomeranian dog named Lucci, who is worth up to £4,000, was stolen after his house was burgled in July 2019, with bags also taken.

The footballer promised a reward of £26,000 ($30,000) to whoever found the pet but Foster Washington, the man claiming to have found the dog, is now filing a new lawsuit stating Sturridge still owes him the reward money, as per a report by TMZ Sports.

The report details that Washington says he found Lucci on the street after the burglary in July 2019 before reaching out to Sturridge, expecting the reward in return for finding his dog.

But according to TMZ, Washington insists Sturridge has not paid him anything at all, so he’s now suing claiming that Sturridge breached a contract by not living up to the reward offer.

Sturridge posted the scene at his burgled house on his Instagram, with detectives later arriving to gather evidence.

While they took fingerprints from a broken door, the footballer took matters into his own hands by pleading for help on social media.

The loss of the favourite pet Lucci was what he was most upset about and Sturridge insisted the ‘dognappers’ should come back “if they wanted to make money.”
