Moses, Chelsea pray for former club captain


Nigeria international, Victor Moses and his Chelsea teammates have been praying for Ray Wilkins and his family as the former club captain remains critically ill in hospital.

The 61-year-old was rushed to the Saint George’s Hospital by his family last week after he suffered a heart attack.

The players have been keeping vigil for the ex-Chelsea player and still came together to pray for Wilkins after Sunday’s game against Tottenham Hotspur at the Stamford Bridge.

Wilkins suffered cardiac arrest last week according to the British media.

“Ray Wilkins is a legend for this club and a really good guy. We want to wish him the best,” Conte said.

“Our prayers are for the family and him and I hope to see him very soon.”

Wilkins, who also played for Manchester United, AC Milan, Rangers and QPR, has been working as a pundit for Sky Sports and Talksport.

As a player, Wilkins won the FA Cup with Manchester United in 1983 and the Scottish league title with Rangers in 1989.

He made 84 appearances for England and captained his country 10 times.

Wilkins had spells as manager of QPR, Fulham and the Jordan national team.

He was also Chelsea assistant coach from 2008 until 2010, working alongside Guus Hiddink and Carlo Ancelotti.
