Lucas Neill declared bankrupt

Former Hammers skipper 'earned $40m'

Former West Ham and Australia national team captain Lucas Neill has been declared bankrupt in the UK with insolvency firm Begbies Traynor appointed trustees last week.

The 38-year-old is believed to have earned approximately $40m during a career which saw him play for Millwall, Blackburn Rovers, Everton, West Ham and Galatasaray while he also won 96 caps for his country, including skippering the Socceroos on a number of occasions.

According to the Daily Telegraph Neill made a number of investments including a coaching business in Sydney and a number of properties in the USA. Administrators say it could take months until the extent of Neill's debts are established.

“Mr Neill is due to be interviewed when he returns to the UK in the coming weeks, at which point the trustees will be able to obtain the background information required to determine the full scale of Mr Neill’s debts,” Dale Hernon of Begbies Traynor said in a statement. “At this early stage of proceedings, it is currently unclear to what extent any funds will be recovered.”
