Changing modern football? Giorgio Chiellini follows Juan Mata and donates 1% of his salary to charity

Italian top football player and vice captain of Italian national team and Juventus follows Juan Mata in his initiative and gives one per cent of his earnings to charity, Corriere della Sera reports.

“I stand with Mata, football should help people in need!,” Chiellini said.

Manchester United’s Spanish Juan Mata donated one per cent to Common Goal, a fund run by the charity streetfootballworld that supports football charities around the world.

“I am launching something that I hope will change the world, even if only in some small way,” he announced on The Players Tribune website.
