AC Milan winger Ante Rebic has once again shown himself to be a class act off the field with a fantastic gesture to help the village he is from.
The Croatian source Novizivot a reports how Rebic has gone above and beyond to help the residents of Donji Vinjani, a small village in Croatia that the former Fiorentina and Eintracht Frankfurt man came from.
He has paid off the debts of 500 residents in the village, the report claims, which is just another sign that he has not forgotten his roots. Not only that, Rebic has followed that up by donating €10,000 to help fund the building of a new facility for the rehabilitation and education of children
As per SportBible, The Golden Sequin Centre is “a non-profit organisation that has been going since 1993 and has 66 employees, who work with around 220 children who have disabilities and autism”.

In addition, Rebic also helped a two-year-old girl called Mile Roncevic receive treatment for leukemia in the United States as part of a larger action group.
