IgbereTV reports that Chelsea footballer, Victor Moses, has made a significant donation to support his former club, Wigan Athletic amid their financial struggles during the pandemic.

At the end of the 2019/2020 season, Wigan were relegated alongside Hull City and Charlton Athletic.

Moses played for the Latics before joining Chelsea in 2012.

The club's supporters body has confimed that the former Super Eagles player has made a significant financial contribution to the club that'll stop them from going into extinction.

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 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!”

Journalist Mike Minay also tweeed:

Former Wigan Athletic player Victor Moses has made a “substantial donation” to the @WiganAthSC crowdfunder.

They are now within £100,000 of their £750,000 target.

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

Moses tweeted:

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

shocked



As generous as this gesture may be, it is rather an exhibition of foolishness.

Such funds should have been donated to the likes of Bendel Insurance of Benin or Mighty Jets of Jos to prevent their extinction.

Nigerians are always good abroad and terrible at home.

I wonder who cursed Nigeria with such unpatriotic tendencies from its citizens.


Rubbish!

He's appreciating the impact Wigan had on his professional career as a footballer. I get that. But I hope he has also donated money to NGOs or even local Nigerian clubs. Anyway, his money, his decisions.
