About Mateo

Since I first started playing football as a young boy, my biggest wish was to play in a great European team and to achieve football triumph with my own merit. I've never thought about my football star status through the luxury that comes with it, because I knew that's my opportunity to help the society, and that's what I still strive for!

By establishing this Foundation I accomplished one of my essential life goals – creating a platform that will help and contribute to children with developmental disabilities.
