Former Charlton Athletic defender Richard Rufus has been declared bankrupt.
He was officially declared bankrupt at Croydon County Court on 22 October under his full name, Richard Raymond Rufus.
Baker Tilly is expected to be appointed to the bankruptcy.
Rufus had previously entered into an Individual Voluntary Arrangement in November 2011.
The former defender made 288 appearances for Charlton Athletic during an 11 year career with the club, as well as representing the England under 21 side six times. Rufus retired in 2004 following a series of injury problems.
Club fans voted Rufus ‘Player of the Year’ in 1995, 2000 and 2001. He was inducted into the Charlton Athletic Hall of Fame in May this year.
Since retiring from playing, Rufus has been engaged in punditry, charity and religious works. In his bankruptcy report, Rufus is listed as a “financial consultant”.
