Milan fan puts goalkeeper Dida up for auction
April 27, 2007 18:54 IST
An angry AC Milan fan put Brazil goalkeeper Dida up for sale on the internet ahead of next week's UEFA Champions League semi-final return with Manchester United.
The 33-year-old, who joined Milan in 2000, was a hero after the shootout win over Juventus in the 2003 Champions League final but his popularity has slumped after a series of errors.
He was criticised following last week's 3-2 first-leg defeat to United at Old Trafford, when he flapped a Cristiano Ronaldo header into his own net and then left his near post exposed for Wayne Rooney to blast home a stoppage-time winner.
Dida failed to attract great interest on eBay. The price, before the Brazilian international was removed from the auction site on Friday, had reached $96.66 after 25 bids.
