Lesotho star joins Juan Mata with Common Goal

Lesotho star joins Juan Mata with Common Goal

Kick4Life & Lesotho star Bokang 'Lefty' Mothona has signed up for Common Goal, an initiative launched by World Cup winner Juan Mata to channel funds from the football industry to good causes.

Through the campaign players commit to donating 1% of their salary which is invested in organisations that use football to change lives. Common Goal was launched by Manchester United  & Spanish international Mata in August and it has since attracted support from players around the world including Mats Hummels, Giorgio Chiellini and Alex Morgan.


Set up in partnership with streetfootballworld, Common Goal is aiming to embed a social conscience within the football industry and to make the 1% commitment a standard across the football industry. If this was achieved it would generate millions of dollars every year to be invested in social development.

Lefty said: "I'm thrilled to be part of this brilliant initiative. It is an incredible opportunity to use football to change lives for the better."

Kick4Life's Director of Football Chris Bullock added: "We are proud of Lefty for making this commitment. Common Goal is a brilliant idea that aligns with the philosophy of Kick4Life - changing lives and changing the game."
