LIVERPOOL legend Ian Callaghan was less than impressed after discovering the red England shirt issued to him for the 1966 World Cup final is going under the hammer.
The long-sleeved No. 20 jersey was given away by Cally “many years ago” and he was surprised to learn it’s one of the items of memorabilia up for action at Sotheby’s in London on May 15.
It has a guide price of £5,000 but the Reds’ record appearance holder won’t see a penny.
“It’s certainly not me who is selling it,” Callaghan said.
“I gave it away many years ago and I gave it away in good faith. It came up on Antiques Road Show a couple of years ago when it was taken along to be valued. I didn’t think it would ever come up for sale and it’s sad to see.”
The shirt wasn’t worn as Callaghan, who played against France in the group stage in 1966, wasn’t selected to face West Germany in the final.
