Former professional football player Royston Drenthe was declared bankrupt on December 1, according to the Central Insolvency Register.

In a response to

Voetbalzone

, the former Real Madrid player says that the situation is a result of 'his negligence, lability of himself'.

Drenthe still has to talk to its own lawyer and can therefore not go into details about this case.

He was not present at a hearing in the case surrounding his alleged bankruptcy on Thursday and suspects that this is the result.

"I don't know exactly what's going on, but if this is what I think it is, it's not that important," said the 33-year-old footballer.

"I'm always under a magnifying glass, but it will be resolved as it should."

The Rotterdammer made a transfer from Feyenoord to Real Madrid in 2007 for 14 million euros.

He played there until 2010, reportedly making three million euros every year.

In 2017 Drenthe said that he had not had anything recorded on paper and that he lost millions in wages as a result.

This money would have gone to his agent, who denied this.

The

AD

reports that the Zeeland-West-Brabant court has assigned a trustee to Drenthe.

The footballer, who is also active as a rapper, now plays for the amateur football club Kozak Boys.
