Jurgen Klopp Makes 1% Salary Pledge

Jurgen Klopp Makes 1% Salary Pledge

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said he is a "member of the Common Goal family", where footballers and coaches donate 1% of their salary to charity.

Klopp, 52, made the announcement during his speech as he collected the men's coach of the year prize at the Best Fifa Football Awards in Milan, Italy.

Common Goal is an initiative that was set up by Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata in August 2017.

Klopp reportedly earns about £10m per year.

Having then received a round of applause, the German added: "A few people obviously know [about] it - if not, Google it. It's a great thing."

However, the Common Goal website crashed moments after Klopp's pronouncement. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
