Chelsea star Victor Moses donates £20,000 to support his former club Wigan Athletic amid their financial struggles.
The club‘s supporters body has confirmed the donation.
The chairperson of Wigan Athletic Supporters’ Club, Caroline Molyneux, confirmed the payment by Victor Moses.
The supporters are aiming to raise £750,000 to support the club this season, and they are now within £100,000 of the target after Moses’ donation.
“Wow what can we say? When Victor Moses got in touch to say he wanted to help by donating such a substantial amount, l just couldn’t believe what I was hearing it’s such an incredible gesture,” Molyneux said.
“Victor Moses made the donation anonymously but we made sure he got the recognition he deserves.
Victor’s contribution has taken us past £650,000 and to within £100,000 of our next target of £750,000.
“We are so thankful to Victor Moses for his support. He is an excellent footballer, a true role model and someone we always enjoyed watching at the DW Stadium. He will always be welcome back here, even more so now!”
Wigan were deducted 12 points after going into administration towards the 2019/20 season, which forced them into relegation alongside Hull City and Charlton Athletic.
Victor Moses donates and calls for more support so as to save the future of Wigan Athletic – the 2013 FA Cup winners.
“Wigan Athletic will always have a special place in my heart,” Victor Moses tweeted.
