Becker ‘must not be paid’

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

BORIS Becker should not be paid di­rectly for his TV work as a com­men­ta­tor, say in­sol­vency lawyers.

They have writ­ten to Euro­pean firms that em­ploy the ten­nis leg­end, 49, say­ing money should be sent to ad­min­is­tra­tors.

Si­mon Sed­don, of Smith & Wil­liamson, said: “We try to sat­isfy the cred­i­tors.”

Becker, £54mil­lion in debt, says he is only in­sol­vent in the UK, but lawyer Jan Gross said: “Bankruptcy in an EU state is valid through­out Europe.”
