Sturridge reunited with missing dog Lucci
Daniel Sturridge has been reunited with his missing dog Lucci a day after issuing an urgent plea to find it following a burglary at his West Hollywood home.
Sturridge took to Instagram with a post showing Lucci safely back home and can be heard in the background saying: "The main man is back people. The main man is back."
Multiple reports in local media said that the dog was returned early on Wednesday morning and that Sturridge said he did not think the people who brought Lucci back had been involved in the burglary.
The 29-year-old was not home when his house in L.A. was burgled, and said that his dog, as well as a number of bags, were stolen.
"Somebody's broke into the house in L.A., took my dog from the house," Sturridge said in an appeal video sent exclusively to ESPN. "Listen, whoever knows who broke into my crib, I'll pay you anything. I'm dead serious.
The forward said that he was willing to offer a £20k-£30k reward in return for his dog.
"How can you break into a house in L.A. and take somebody's dog? Are you crazy? You've come into a house to take a dog?
"Yo, somebody please find my dog. I'll pay anything, I'm dead serious. I want my dog back man."
