Moore's moving tribute to Pele

30 December 2022

Darren Moore has paid a personal tribute to Brazilian legend Pele, who passed away on Thursday before the Owls hosted Port Vale.

A moving minute’s appreciation for the football great took place as players and supporters from both sides filled the S6 night air with rapturous applause.

Speaking after the game to swfc.co.uk: “We only found out before kick-off and well done to everyone because normally these things take time to organise.

“Our thanks to Port Vale too as both clubs recognised that we just had to get it done to honour a man of Pele’s standing.

“Pele graced football like no other. When you look at his goals stats and appearances, it’s a phenomenal record and unrivalled.

“It’s incredible to think Pele graced the Hillsborough turf not once but twice and we can only thank him for his contribution to our game.

“Our thoughts and prayers go to his family at this very, very sad time.”
