Wigan Athletic F.C. is currently struggling financially due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and Nigerian-born Chelsea football star Victor Moses who once played for the team donated over £400,000 to help them during these hard times.

Apparently, Wigan were deducted 12 points after going into administration towards the end of the 2019-20 season, which forced them into relegation alongside Hull City and Charlton Athletic.

The club’s supporters body estimated that they needed about £750,000 in other to successfully go through this season else they were at risk of going into extinction but Victor’s timely act of charity has saved them.

They are now within £100,000 of the target after Moses sent money.

“Wow – what can we say? When Victor got in touch to say he wanted to help by donating such a substantial amount, I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing – it’s such an incredible gesture,” , the chairperson of Wigan Athletic Supporters’ Club, Caroline Molyneux, said.

“Victor wanted to make the donation and remain anonymous but we simply had to make sure he gets 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 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!”

Moses, took to his Twitter handle to call for more support to save the future of the 2013 FA Cup winners.

“Wigan Athletic will always have a special place in my heart,” Moses tweeted.

“I have so many incredible memories from my time there and the people of Wigan and everyone associated with the club have always been so good to me and my family. We must do all we can to protect the future of this great club.”
