Shakhtar Donetsk Vow To Pay Rest Of Maicon’s Contract To His Family After Striker Killed In Car Crash

Shakhtar Donetsk have done the decent thing and announced that the club will pay-up the rest of late striker Maicon’s contract to his family after the 25-year-old Brazilian tragically died in a car crash last Saturday.

Appearing at a Q&A session for fans yesterday, Shakhtar CEO Sergie Palkin was asked what support Maicon’s family would be receiving from the club in the wake of his sad death, to which he replied:

“The contract with Maicon was valid through mid-2015. From a legal point of view, in such situations [the contract would normally expire], but Maicon has had a 7-year-old daughter and quite elderly parents left.

“Therefore, the president of the club decided to hand his family the amount stipulated by the contract, in full, to support his family at this difficult time.”

Very admirable.
