Former England and Manchester United footballer Wes Brown has been declared bankrupt at the High Court.


HMRC filed a bankruptcy petition against Brown, who reportedly earned £50,000-a-week during his playing days at Old Trafford, on February 27.


The petition was rubber-stamped at the High Court on April 12 and listed on The Gazette, the official public record.


Defender Brown, 43, was in United's first team for 15 years having come through the Old Trafford club's academy ranks.


He made 362 appearances for the club, winning five Premier League titles, two FA Cup, two League Cups and two Champions Leagues during an illustrious career.
