Somebody stole my dog. I’ll pay anything. I want him back.

The video shows shattered glass all over the floor from a break in through a glass door, while the Englishman also revealed that his bags had been stolen from upstairs.

Sturridge said: "I wanna know who took my s***. I wanna know what's went on. I wanna know why they've took my dog."

"Something has gotta change, like how can you break into a house in LA and take someone's dog? 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."

This break in comes in a string of robberies targetted at footballers in recent months including Alvaro Morata and Lucas Vazquez.

One has to feel for Sturridge during this time as he hopes his dog, Lucci, is safe and is returned in a quick manner.
