"I'm really proud and happy that I can announce that from today on I am a member of the Common Goal family," he said. "A few people obviously know [about] it.

"If not, Google it. It's a great thing."

The Common Goal charity was set up by Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata, with several footballers including United States women's pair Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan having joined. 

Defenders Giorgio Chiellini of Juventus and Mats Hummels of Borussia Dortmund are among the high profile men's players who have joined the cause.

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann was the first manager to join the charity, while United women's coach Casey Stoney is also a member.
