Former Premier League star Daniel Sturridge ordered to pay £22K to man who found his dog
Daniel Sturridge offered a reward after his prized-Pomeranian was stolen from a house in Los Angeles
Former Premier League striker Daniel Sturridge has reportedly been ordered to pay £22,400 to a man who found his Pomeranian after the dog was stolen.
The former Liverpool player's precious pup, Lucci, was stolen from a house in Los Angeles two years ago and he offered a reward for its safe return.
Lucci was later found by musician Foster Washington who shared pictures on social media and helped reunite Sturridge with the designer dog.
A Los Angeles court has now ordered Sturridge to pay Foster $30,085 after it was found he did not honour the reward.
Sturridge did not answer to the complaint, with ta default judgement given.
Foster, whose rap name is Killa Fame, has said he felt let down by the footballer and hopes he will now pay up.
He is understood to have been fighting the case for over a year.
