Footballer Andre Wisdom hospitalised after being stabbed & robbed on street

Derby County defender, Andre Wisdom is hospitalised after he was stabbed in Liverpool at the weekend.

Derby have confirmed he "sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital, where he is in a stable condition."

The club tweeted: "Get well soon, Wis."

Wisdom was at his home in Merseyside on Saturday night, following Derby's 2-1 win against Reading, when a relative called him.

He drove to the Toxteth/Wavertree area of Liverpool later that night to pick the relative up, and as he got out of his car, he was attacked in the street by a man with a knife, who stabbed him more than once, and then robbed him.

He was taken to hospital, where he is still receiving treatment.

Merseyside police are investigating the attack.

Wisdom is expected to be discharged from hospital before the weekend, but he will miss Wednesday's clash with Preston, and is also likely to be out for the weekend game with Nottingham Forest.
