Loads of Everton fans have been lauding Morgan Schneiderlin for a ‘wonderful gesture’ offered to one Blues supporter, who had recently lost a family member.
Toffees fan Dan Griffiths posted a story to Reddit on Thursday evening noting that his mother had recently passed away following a lengthy battle with cancer, and how she had always said “see you in the Morgan Schneiderlin” before going to bed each night.
On the week of his mother’s funeral, Griffiths reached out to Schneiderlin through his Instagram account and shared his tale with the midfielder, who swiftly replied back with a heart-warming gesture after being moved by the tale.
Schneiderlin has invited Griffiths and his family to attend the West Ham United game at Goodison Park this weekend as a personal guest of his, and shared a few messages with the Toffees supporter.
Everton have since shared Griffiths’ post on their official Twitter account, with Blues fans lauding Schneiderlin for his actions of ‘true class’ that were ‘a lovely thing to do’.
Here are some of the messages shared…
