DERBY County star Andre Wisdom was stabbed in the head and backside by an armed gang who stole his watch, it’s been revealed.

The defender, 27, was rushed to hospital after he was knifed and robbed as he went to visit a relative.

It is believed ex-Liverpool star Andre was stabbed while getting out of his car in the early hours of Sunday morning in Toxteth, Merseyside.

Further details of the brutal robbery have been revealed by police today.

Cops said he suffered stab wounds to his buttocks and head and was taken to hospital for treatment for his injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening.

His designer watch was stolen by the gang.

Following the attack, his sister said: “He’s been stabbed and is in hospital.

“He’s stable and my other brother is on his way there. It’s crazy. I can’t believe it.”

Derby said: “Andre Wisdom has been the victim of an unprovoked assault and robbery.

“He sustained injuries which resulted in him being admitted to hospital.”

The attack came hours after Andre and teammates celebrated promotion-chasing Derby’s  2-1 Championship win over Reading on Saturday.

A source said: “It’s awful news. He must have been on a high after his team played so well.

“To then have something like this happen is just tragic. It was totally unprovoked.

“It’s impossible to imagine what his family must be going through.

“All his fans wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully he’ll be back on the pitch again soon.”

Detectives have appealed for any witnesses to come forward.

We are determined to find the people responsible for this assault and robbery

Detective Sergeant Richie Shillito said: “I would appeal to anyone who was in the area around Beaumont Street around 4.30am who saw anyone or anything suspicious to contact us.

“Similarly I would ask for anyone who captured anything significant on dash-cam footage to get in touch as they may have information which is vital to our investigation.

“The investigation is in the early stages but we are determined to find the people responsible for this assault and robbery and I would urge anyone who knows anything to come forward.”

Andre was praised by fans after Saturday’s win, in which Derby skipper Wayne Rooney got the winner.

One tweeted: “Only one Man of the Match for me  — what a performance from Andre Wisdom.”

Wisdom moved to Championship cub Derby from Liverpool in 2017 after signing for them when he was just 14.

He’s previously played on loan for Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion.

He recently dated model Iskra Lawrence, who is a body positivity Instragrammer and has over 4.6m followers.
