Derby County defender Andre Wisdom is stable in the hospital after being stabbed in an “unprovoked assault and assault” in Liverpool.
The club confirmed on Monday that Wisdom had been robbed in Toxteth while visiting relatives.
They said the 27-year-old will recover completely and that Merseyside police are investigating the incident.
“The club will focus its efforts on supporting Andre and his family,” said a Derby statement.
Wisdom joined Liverpool in 2012 and made 14 appearances before leaving for Derby in 2017.
He participated in Rams’ 2-1 win over Reading on Saturday.
