Southampton's players and coaching staff will each donate one day's wages to the Saints Foundation, the club have announced.

The offer comes after Friday night’s 9-0 home humiliation to Leicester which equalled the record score in Premier League history.

The club said in a statement: ‘Southampton Football Club’s first-team players and coaching staff have announced they will be donating their wages from last Friday to Saints Foundation.

‘The squad has been in at Staplewood Campus throughout the weekend, working on putting things right for the club's supporters.

‘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 Saints Foundation works with children, young people and at-risk adults in the Southampton area to develop their potential and transform lives.

The struggling St Mary’s outfit, who currently sit in the Premier League relegation zone, are currently bracing themselves for two consecutive trips to face Manchester City within the next six days.
