Lucashed out?

Post by Mad_Max »

Lucas Neill declared bankrupt in UK, trustees appointed

Administrators have been appointed after former Socceroos captain Lucas Neill was declared bankrupt in the UK.

Neill, who is believed to have earned about $40 million playing in England for 15 years, was declared bankrupt in January.

London-based Insolvency experts Begbies Traynor were appointed trustees to the bankruptcy last week.

"Mr Neill is due to be interviewed when he returns to the UK in the coming weeks," Dale Hernon of Begbies Traynor said in a statement.

"At which point the trustees will be able to obtain the background information required to determine the full scale of Mr Neill's debts. At this early stage of proceedings, it is currently unclear to what extent any funds will be recovered."

Neill is believed to have invested in property in both Australia and the United States.

The 38-year-old from Sydney played for Australia on 96 occasions before being left out of the Socceroos' 2014 World Cup squad.

Neill's English club career began with Millwall in 1995. He also played with Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United, Everton and most recently Watford.

He has also had stints in the Middle East, Turkey and Japan as well as playing four A-League games for Sydney FC in 2013.

Can see why now he wanted to play for $$$. Wonder if he will reform himself after a few years and call himself Lucas Neill Mark2. :wink:

West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

To be fair, he isn't the first & he won't be the last.

Obviously he never listened to the old adage; 'don't put all your eggs in the same basket'.

I thought everybody knew that you should spread your money widely so that if one area fails you still have the others to fall back on. :?: :idea:

He did just that and got himself caught out with liquidity.

He got a ringing endorsement of his character from Mark Bosnich on 'The Back Page' last night - isn't that a bit like getting camping tips from Ivan Milat?
