Steve Finnan is auctioning off his Liverpool winner's medals and old jerseys

Finnan's property development business appears to have gone into liquidation

Former Liverpool right-back Steve Finnan is selling his winner's medals and matchworn jerseys on auction website Graham Budd Auctions.

The Irishman won the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005 and was a key part of their side throughout most of the noughties, bud faded quickly after leaving in 2008 to join Espanyol, where he played just four matches. One last season at Portsmouth in 09-10 was enough for him to realise it was time to call it a day at the age of 34.

Since then, nobody has heard much from him. He missed an Istanbul reunion because the organisers couldn't get hold of him. He doesn't do media appearances, preferring the quiet life in property development.

Although it looks like his venture into the property business has taken a turn for the worse. As the world grapples with the impending recession, Finnan is no different. Finnan Developments, listed on Companies House as being based in Raynes Park, south London - close to Wimbledon where he played as a teenager - has gone into liquidation.

That would explain why he is selling his medals, and matchworn jerseys.


Prices for his memorabilia start relatively low, with his 2005 Carling Cup runner's up medal currently going for between £800-£1200, and his shirt from that game for sale at between £700-1,000.

His Champions League winner's medal, on the other hand, is listed at between £12,000 - £15,000, and his signed jersey from that game against AC Milan is going for £2,000 - £2,500.

A replica of the 2005 Champions League trophy is also up for grabs, as well as other pre-season medals.

If any of you have a few thousand pounds lying around and like to collect football memorabilia, now if your chance to help out a Liverpool legend.

If you don't, fair enough - nobody has any money at the moment.
