Victor Moses has donated the sum of twenty thousand pounds to Wigan Athletic who are currently facing administration.

The ex Wigan attacker spent two years with the club from 2010 to 2012 before joining Chelsea for £9million in the summer of 2012.

The Latics announced going to administration in July due to their financial issues during the pandemic period as they were battling relegation in the English Championship.

Wigan’s relegation to League One was confirmed after they lost their appeal against a 12-point deduction for going into administration. Wigan appealed against the punishment on the grounds of ‘force majeure’. But an independent arbitration panel ruled against them.

The Chairperson of Wigan Athletic told the club website “Victor’s Contribution has taken us past £650,000 and to within £100,000 of our next target of £750,000.”

As the Latics return to the League one their first game of the new season will be against Ipswich town at Portman Road on September 13.
