Erik Sviatchenko Donates 10,000 Danish Krone to FC Midtjylland Fans Group

Erik Sviatchenko Donates 10,000 Danish Krone to FC Midtjylland Fans Group

Celtic defender Erik Sviatchenko has donated 10,000 Danish krone to a fans group of former club FC Midtjylland.

The amount – which equates to just over £1000 – was donated by the centre-half to the Black Wolves supporters group, who plan to put the amount towards buying paint and equipment to create a tifo banner for an upcoming match.

The Danish international came through the ranks at Midtjylland, spending seven years with their senior side before departing for the Scottish champions in January of this year.

But despite heading for pastures new, Sviatchenko still keeps and eye on his former team’s results and continues to enjoy a close relationship with their supporters.

Referring to his donation, he told Midtjylland’s official website: “The club have been in my heart club for ten years and the fans have always been there for me.

“Therefore, I would like to pay back a little, which they can use to create a great atmosphere for my old team-mates and for the other spectators who come to the stadium.”

And Thomas Mikkelsen, the chairman of the Black Wolves group, had nothing but positive things to say about Sviatchenko and his generosity.

“It’s super cool of Erik. He’s a good guy, and I think all hope to see him back in FC Midtjylland when he is done abroad. We have followed Erik since he was a young lad at the Academy.”

Sviatchenko has only been at Celtic for a few months, but has already made a positive impact since arriving in Glasgow.

His early displays have been promising, and he was one of just a few Hoops players who came out of the recent Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers with anything close to pass marks.

What do you think of his his gesture?
