Juventus defender Medhi Benatia has announced the launch of the Medhi Benatia Foundation to help children get equitable medical attention.

The former Bayern Munich centre-back who has made three appearances in the Italian top-flight this campaign disclosed that the foundation's goal is to enhance good health status of children in an effort to help them actualise their dreams and become a driving force in the future.

Benatia was an unused substitute as the Old Lady bowed to a 3-2 defeat to Sampdoria in Saturday’s Serie A game.
