Wes Brown, a former star for Manchester United, reportedly made £2.6 million a year in wages while he was playing but was still regarded as bankrupt. According to reports, Wes Brown received a bankruptcy ruling from the High Court.

The High Court formally acknowledged Brown’s bankruptcy on April 12 after it was revealed that he made roughly £50,000 per week while playing for the Red Devils in the Premier League.

Brown was listed as the debtor in a bankruptcy petition made by HMRC in February.

The High Court later affirmed it last week. The former defender made his United debut in 1998 and played for the team until 2011 when he left to join Sunderland. Throughout that period, he participated in more than 200 games.

When Brown was 12 years old, he enrolled in Manchester United’s academy, where he started his professional career. He became a professional in 1996, made his professional debut in 1998, and during the course of the club’s 1998–99 Treble–winning season, he gradually worked his way into the first team as a semi–regular.

After missing a whole season due to injury, Brown resumed playing often with the first team in 2000. He received countless honors over the following eight years, including four more Premier League championships, an FA Cup, a League Cup, and another Champions League.

Brown was hailed by former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson as “without a doubt, the best natural defender this club has had in years.”Brown was given permission to leave Manchester United after 15 years and join Sunderland.

Since his senior-level debut in 1999, Brown has played in 23 matches for England. Notably, he traveled to Japan and South Korea for the 2002 FIFA World Cup with the England squad.

Despite spending the bulk of his time on the bench when making his international debut in 1999 against Hungary, Brown was chosen by Sven-Göran Eriksson for the 2002 World Cup.
