Ex-Man United star speaks out for first time since being declared bankrupt

Former Manchester United star Wes Brown has broken his silence after being declared bankrupt last year.

HMRC filed a bankruptcy petition against Brown last February and the petition was rubber-stamped at the High Court two months later.

“When you are making a lot of money, you need the right people,” Brown told the Ben Heath Podcast.
