Ex-Real Madrid and Everton flop Drenthe declared bankrupt
FORMER Everton star and Holland international Royston Drenthe has been declared bankrupt.
The Sun reports that the 33-year-old is currently plying his trade in the Dutch Division Two with Kozak Boys, but has some problems off the pitch.
As reported by Dutch news-site AD, a court in Breda handed down the bankruptcy order.
But Drenthe is confident the matter will be resolved, telling Voetbalzone that he ‘didn’t know exactly what is going on’.
He also added: “I am always under a magnifying glass, but it will be resolved as it should.”
Drenthe has previously revealed that he had lost £3.2M earned from what looked like a promising football career.
He started his career in his homeland with Feyenoord, before a big-money move to Real Madrid.
But Drenthe failed to find his feet in Spain, and after just 46 games in five years, including spells on loan at Hercules and Everton, he joined Alania Vladikavkaz.
Now he is back in Holland playing lower-league football.
Drenthe also made more headline off the pitch when he decided to become a Rapper.
He goes by the stage name Roy2faces though hasn’t quite hit the big time just yet.
Earlier this year he turned his hand to acting in a mafia show about gangs and cocaine trafficking.
He appeared in the Dutch series Mocro Mafia, which follows three friends entering the world of serious crime in the Amsterdam underworld.
Drenthe announced his latest venture on Instagram, writing: “New signing reported!!! The time has come… After a long silence, may I finally announce that I can be seen in the mocro mafia series!
“I’m super excited about my participation in the series and can’t wait to entertain the viewers with my role!
“I am more than excited to show you this other side of Royston but I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. So go check it out!”
