After a record-equaling 0-9 loss against Leicester City in gameweek 10 of the Premier League, Southampton players donated their match wages.
Besides the players, the coaching staff also went to donate a day's wages to charity.
The defeat against the Foxes saw Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl calling it a "disaster".
Here are the details.
The wages will go to Saints Foundation
Southampton issued a statement confirming the same.
The wages will go to Saints Foundation, in order to help the vital work that is conducted by the charity.
