Southampton Players Give Match Earnings to Charity after Leicester Thrashing


After the 9-0 humiliation suffered at the hands of Wilfred Ndidi and his Leicester City teammates, Southampton players have donated their wages from the Friday night Premier League game to Charity.

Southampton have revealed the players have been working at the Staplewood training centre throughout the weekend as they look to put right the devastation at St Mary’s – the Premier League’s biggest-ever away win.


“As the first step towards that, the group has decided that they wish to donate their wages from the day of the Leicester game to Saints Foundation, in order to help the vital work that is conducted by the charity,” the club said.


“The players and staff are now directing all their energy and focus towards the two games in Manchester this week.”


Southampton face back-to-back visits to Manchester City this week, first in the Carabao Cup last-16 on Tuesday, and then in the Premier League on Saturday.


Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl apologised to the fans after Friday night’s devastation on the south coast, and captain Nathan Redmond admitted it was “the stuff of nightmares”.
