    Ex-Watford striker Fernando Forestieri has been hailed a "true earth angel" after the kind-hearted footballer handed ill mum Hayley Kalinins £10,000 in cash.

    The generous act will help the 35-year-old mum-of-four fund revolutionary cancer treatment in Germany.

    Stunned Hayley, from Borrowash, Derbys., was diagnosed with Stage 4 incurable secondary breast cancer in July 2011.

    The vile disease spread to her liver and lungs but she is now in "partial remission" after using social media to raise a whopping £150,000 for her specialist treatment overseas.

    And she was overwhelmed with Sheffield Wednesday's Forestieri's surprise gift.

    Hayley, who is married to Sheffield Wednesday fitness coach Andy Kalinins, said: "Fernando Forestieri has always been very supportive to our treatment.

    "A lot of footballers get a lot of bad press, but he is genuinely lovely and caring. He is a true angel of the earth."

    The sales assistant, who met her partner when they were both working at Derby County, added: "He just turned up and said he wanted to make a donation to the fund. He said he was happy for it to be publicly announced.

    "He gave us the money there and then in cash. We went straight to the bank as we didn't want that kind of money hanging around."

    And yet we spend more on Lukebakio and Zeegelaar combined than we got for him.

    Stop mentioning Fessi. It just makes me sad that he isn't with us any more

    With you fam. Think I'd be happier with relegation and getting Vyds and Fessi back than Working for the Premier Dollar.

    Does anyone think we may have let him go too soon?

    Bring back Fessi, Vydra and Abdi please Pozzo. It will ease my nostalgic tantrums and having the three of them in the starting lineup every game will get us back into the Championship - where we belong

    Biggest mystery here is why Clive was trawling through Daily Star articles from two years ago.

    He didn’t hesitate. As soon as he saw what was happening he dived straight in.

    All joking aside, looking at our 25 man squad, Vydra, Fessi and Cassetti would all get in it.

    Even as backups I’d have those 3 over many in the current squad.

    Zeegalar, holebobs, Gray and Sinclair

    We are losing. Let’s bring on Sinclair!

    We are losing. Let’s bring on Gray!

    We are losing let’s bring on Fessi or Vydra!

    Which of those sentences would get the crowd going? Which might give us a ******* chance

    I too was fond of FF, but for balance. wasn't deemed good enough for PL, sometimes forgotten but he did have has share of dire games when he didn't show up at all, alas when he did show up twas a joy to behold. Our poundland Messi.

    Just another sign he wants to come home.

    Anyone else think we got rid of him too soln?

    Don't think we would be interested in bringing FF home, he is not PL standard IMO.

    Lots of discussion on both Mansfield & Wednesday's forum about the fact that FF is the one suspected of making the racist comment.

    Hope not.. and that it can be proved otherwise.. but it doesn't seem likely.

    That’s a bit harsh .

    If it was a corporation I would be cynical too.

    I think FF is defo good enough for Prem but only if he played for Watford as he would just up his game to the required level ... which he would if he was playing for us .
