Mata woos players launches operation 1% to charity


Manchester United attacking midfielder Juan Mata
has called on professional players across the globe
to key into charity of touching lives even as he vowed
on Friday to donate one percent of his salary to
charity.
The Spain international, 29, has signed up to a
scheme called Common Goal created by
streetfootballworld, a group of 120 charities from 80
countries.
“What we’re trying to do is define a shared social
agenda for football. Common Goal goes beyond
individual brands and egos to deliver a greater
impact,” Mata said.
“By making the pledge, we can form a lasting
connection between football as a business and
football as a tool for social change.”
Common Goal is aiming to assemble a ‘starting XI’ of
players prepared to commit one percent of their
earnings, with the ultimate aim of securing one
percent of revenue from the entire football industry.
“One of the first lessons I learned in football is that it
takes a team to win a game,” Mata added in an
article on the Players’ Tribune website. “I urge my
fellow players to get involved.”
