Former Liverpool right-back Steve Finnan is selling his medals and matchworn shirts – including the medal he earned for his role in the miracle of Istanbul.
Finnan is selling his 2005 Champions League winner’s medal and matchworn Liverpool shirts on auction website Graham Budd Auctions.
His Champions League winner’s medal is listed on the site between £12,000 – £15,000, and his signed shirt from that game against AC Milan back in 2005 is going for £2,000 – £2,500.
Also on the site are the Irishman’s 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.
While a replica of the 2005 Champions League trophy is also up for grabs, as well as other pre-season medals.
And it appears Finnan has opted to put his football memorabilia up for grabs as the property development business he owns appears to have gone into liquidation.
According to Companies House, Finnan Developments, based in Raynes Park, south London, has gone into liquidation.
It was recently reported in The Times that Finnan has seen his London property development business implode and he has fallen out with his brother Sean over a £4.03m (€4.4m) debt.
The former full-back is believed to have pumped €4m-plus into a series of property developments in London, carried out by his brother and their Finnan Developments group.
The international break is almost over and Premier League football is back with a bang.
Liverpool travel to Everton on Saturday for the first Merseyside derby of the season.

But after disagreement between the two, the former Reds star became the sole owner of Wimbledon Developments and his brother took another company.
But that hasn’t stopped the former Republic of Ireland international, according to the report, recently moving to have his brother declared bankrupt over the €4.4m debt.
Finnan, who made 217 appearances for Liverpool between 2003 and 2008, retired from playing when his contract expired at Portsmouth back in the summer of 2010.
