Tranmere Rovers up for sale -- on eBay
London: Fans of English third division club Tranmere Rovers were bemused to find their club up for sale on popular online shopping and auction site eBay this week -- a move prompting an angry reaction from owner Peter Johnson.
Johnson appointed American firm Dornoch Capital earlier this year to find a buyer for the club but said on Friday he was shocked to discover it had been listed on the website for 6 million pounds.
"This is not a second-hand bike we`re selling," Johnson was quoted.
An official statement on the club`s website said Johnson had told Dornoch to withdraw the advert immediately.
"Mr. Johnson was very disappointed to discover that Dornoch Capital had chosen eBay.com as a route to find a potential buyer and would not have given them permission to do so had he been asked," the statement said.
Last month Tranmere appointed former England winger John Barnes as manager.
