Wigan Athletic’s fan Sean Kennedy grabbed the 90’s dance tune ‘Freed from Desire’ by Gala, changed the lyrics, posted it online and a new phenomenon was born.
While Wigan Athletic promoted to the League One, thanks in part to Will Grigg’s impressive record in front of goal,
one Kennedy’s ode to the attacker has taken the football world by storm, after it was posted on social media. The club have acted by rewarding the genius behind the chant that has helped build momentum in their promotion push. Kenny earned a free season ticket, as the feel-good atmosphere at the DW Stadium following the club’s immediate return to the Championship continues.
