Millwall FC and Senegal footballer Magaye Gueye has been declared bankrupt.
Gueye was declared bankrupt at Liverpool County Court on 23 June on a creditor’s petition.
The 24 year-old forward joined Championship side Millwall from Everton on a free transfer during the summer on a 12 month contract. He had previously played for French teams Racing Club de Strasbourg and Brest.
The petition was brought against Gueye by Jafar Hilali, the former president of Racing Club de Strasbourg, who sold the club in July 2011 to a supporter for the symbolic amount of €1 – just five days before the club entered liquidation.
Guy Hollander and Tim Hewson of Mazars LLP have been appointed as joint trustees.
Paul Rouse, head of National Creditor Services at Mazars said “We were only very recently appointed to Mr Gueye’s case. We are currently awaiting the handover of documentation from the Official Receiver and the joint trustees will look to work with Mr Gueye in terms of coming to a resolution.”
Earlier this year David James, former England and Liverpool goalkeeper, and former Blackburn and Chelsea striker Chris Sutton, were both declared bankrupt.
