New Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic says that he will try his best to be ready for the new season after making his debut for the club against Sampdoria. He's never quite been a flawless fit in the United team since he signed for the club over three years ago, but he has a permanent place in the hearts of the United faithful.
The Spaniard, who is reported to earn £140,000-a-week at Old Trafford, will be giving the money to Common Goal - a collective fund of 120 charities in 80 countries around the world. "I urge my fellow players to get involved", Mata said.
Mata said: "What we're trying to do is define a shared social agenda for football".
Mata writes: "I am leading this effort, but I don't want to be alone...it takes a team to accomplish your dreams".
"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.
Dashcam films small plane crashing next to highway
Thanks to Ray Anthony, who was driving home from work, we get to see this crash because Anthony's dashcam was on and recording. Bullard resident Joshua Daniel, 36, and Jamie Jackson, 33, of Tomball, were identified as the occupants of the plane.
"We live by this mantra on the pitch, yet we rarely see it play out in the social impact space, which is dominated by individual initiatives".
The first target is to assemble a "starting XI" of committed players, with the long-term goal of unlocking one per cent of the entire revenue from the football industry for grassroots football charities.
"By doing so we can show the wider football industry that Common Goal needs to happen and that it will happen, because it's right". Football has the power to do this, but we need to act together. Mata's ground-breaking initiative is a reminder that there are some good people left in the game yet.
