Man Who 'Found And Returned' Daniel Sturridge's Dog Blasts The Footballer On Twitter
The man who claimed to have found and returned Daniel Sturridge's dog has slated the footballer for being 'dishonest' about the reward.
The ex-Liverpool star, 29, made a heartfelt appeal for his dog, Lucci, to be returned after his house in Los Angeles was broken into earlier this week.
And it wasn't long before an aspiring LA rapper by the name of 'Killa Fame' said that he had found the missing dog.
However, the same man has now slammed the English striker for apparently not paying up the £30,000 reward in a series of tweets -- some of which have been deleted.
Killa Fame tweeted: "Found @DanielSturridge dog Lucci by me and my nephew... no sizable reward.. so dishonest lies. €30,000 [sic]."
The rapper continued to rant about not receiving payment for Lucci's return and called the former Reds striker "dishonest."
He added in two tweets: "So since @DanielSturridge dog was found by a black man... he didn't deserve the Reward offered!
"Don't offer a reward if you not planning on Living up to your word [sic]!!"
Sturridge, who is now a free agent, posted a video message on Instagram thanking everybody for helping him to reunite with Lucci.
"I can't believe it," the England international said.
"I just want to say a big thank you to everyone on social media who supported us and raised awareness.
"I'm so thankful."

The ex-Chelsea and Manchester City man launched the appeal after he posted a picture of the break-in on Instagram and said that he would "pay anything" for his dog's return.
Sturridge said at the time: "Somebody's broken into the house in LA, taken my dog from the house.
"Listen, whoever knows who broke into my crib, I'll pay you anything. I'm dead serious. I wanna know who took my s**t. I wanna know what's [happened].
"I wanna know why they've [taken] my dog. I wanna know why they've [taken] bags from upstairs.
"How can you break into a house in LA and take someone's dog? Are you crazy? You've come into a house to take a dog?
"Yo, someone please find my dog. I'll pay anything, I'm dead serious. I want my dog back, man."
