ROME (Reuters) - An angry AC Milan fan put Brazil goalkeeper Dida up for sale online ahead of next week’s 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 criticized 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 71 euros ($97) after 25 bids.
