Bankrupt ex-Liverpool and Man City ‘keeper David James auctions off Vauxhall Astra
Bankrupt former Liverpool and Manchester City goalkeeper David James is auctioning off memorabilia to raise funds – including a Vauxhall Astra with over 100,000 miles on the clock.
James, who made 53 appearances for England and won the FA Cup with Portsmouth in 2008, earned an estimated £20m during a 25-year playing career in England but has fallen on hard times following a bitter divorce.
The 44-year-old, who also had stints at Aston Villa, West Ham, Bristol City and Bournemouth, was declared bankrupt in May.
Memorabilia on sale includes signed England shirts, football tops he has swapped with opposing players and one from the 2002 World Cup against Argentina he played in.
James is still playing , though, with him turning out in the India Super League for Kerala Blasters.
He has listed a collection of books, a Jubilee mug with the Queen’s face on, a chainsaw and a Vauxhall Astra van with 110,370 miles on the clock.
Bids are being accepted between November 6 and 18 with Hilco Industrial.
