Pay us Becker’s fees – lawyers

Daily Mail - - News -

LAWYERS deal­ing with Boris Becker’s debt have told his em­ploy­ers not to pay him – and send the salary di­rectly to them in­stead.

The bank­rupt ten­nis star, pic­tured, ap­pears on BBC Wim­ble­don cov­er­age, and has a Eu­rosport con­tract.

He was de­clared in­sol­vent in Lon­don in June. Now lawyers Smith & Wil­liamson have re­port­edly writ­ten to all TV chan­nels which em­ploy him say­ing his fees must be given straight to ad­min­is­tra­tors.

Si­mon Sed­don, from the com­pany, told Ger­many’s Bild news­pa­per: ‘We try to sat­isfy the cred­i­tors. But we can­not say whom we are ap­proach­ing in de­tail.’

An­other Ger­man news­pa­per said any­one who pays the 49-year-old di­rectly runs risk of pay­ing twice.

The three-times Wim­ble­don cham­pion is be­lieved to owe some £54mil­lion to cred­i­tors. He has been told not to sell his valu­able ten­nis tro­phies or prop­erty.
