UEFA PRESIDENT HAS PLEDGED TO "COMMON GOAL"

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin has pledged 1% of his salary to Common Goal - a project co-founded by Manchester United star Juan Mata - which funds high-impact football charities worldwide.

 

Spain international and Manchester United FC midfielder Juan Mata was the first player to donate 1% of his wages to the Common Goal project which funds high-impact football charities from all over the world. Commenting on his decision to support Common Goal, UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin said: “I firmly believe that football has the power to change the world and I was inspired by Juan Mata to join the Common Goal project. It’s great to see a player leading this movement because footballers have benefitted greatly from football and this way they can give something back. “I call upon everyone in the international football community - players, coaches, clubs and leagues - to show they care about social initiatives and donate to causes that they believe in."

 

Following on from the UEFA President, Juan Mata added: “I deeply thank Aleksander for the trust he puts in Common Goal and I can only applaud his gesture and agree with his strong conviction that football can help shape a better world. “He is the first football leader to join our cause and I truly hope that many will follow his example.”
