King Eric has com­mon goal

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT -

UNITED leg­end Eric Can­tona has joined Juan Mata and the Com­mon Goal project in an­other high-pro­file ad­di­tion for the so­cial move­ment.

Can­tona, 52, is ar­guably the ini­tia­tive’s most fa­mous ad­di­tion as mem­bers of the foot­ball in­dus­try at­tempt to trans­form the lives of young peo­ple across the world. Com­mon Goal was set up last year with the in­ten­tion of en­cour­ag­ing foot­ball fig­ures to do­nate at least one per cent of their an­nual wages to foot­ball char­i­ties.

Can­tona an­nounced his ‘sign­ing’ in a first per­son piece for The Play­ers’ Tri­bune.
