He’s also turning the page on the season with class, joining the Juan Mata-led Common Goal movement. Wondolowski will donate at least one percent of his salary to “high-impact soccer charities.”
Wondo joins a list which includes Premier League veterans Alfie Mawson and Charlie Daniels, international stars Giorgio Chiellini and Mats Hummels, and USWNT stars Alex Morgan, Heather O’Reilly, and Megan Rapinoe.
Wondo’s 13-goal season gives him 134 in 293 games, and the Californian is likely to end his career in MLS as the league’s all-time leading scorer. He’s currently 11 goals behind Landon Donovan.
