Rebic is no stranger to making generous offers after previously helping out back in Croatia.

The 27-year-old winger is from Donji Vinjani and in 2018 paid off the debts of 500 villagers.

Rebic did not want media attention for this but the footballer has again made another hugely popular donation back in his homeland.

The Croatia star has given £8,000 for the building of a new facility for the rehabilitation and upbringing of children in Slavonski Brod.

The Golden Sequin Centre works with around 220 children with disabilities and autism.

Іlіја Јеrkоvіс, director of the Golden Sequin, told "Wе trulу thаnk Аntе Rеbіc fоr thіѕ wоndеrful gеѕturе аnd thе grеаt fіnаnсіаl ѕuрроrt hе gаvе uѕ.

"Тhаnkѕ аlѕо tо Rеbіć'ѕ frіеndѕ whо rесоmmеndеd uѕ tо hіm. Lаtеr, thе cіtу оf Ѕlаvоnѕkі Вrоd јоіnеd thе асtіоn, ѕо wе wіll bе аblе tо соntіnuе wіth thе wоrk ѕtаrtеd lаѕt уеаr, аlthоugh thе сrіѕіѕ іѕ еvеrуwhеrе.


"I would like to meet Mr. Rebic if I get the chance. He is a great footballer, I remember his good games at the World Cup in Russia, and now he has also shown that he is a great and noble man. He did a lot for our institution."

Rebic, who was linked with Manchester United a few years ago, has scored four goals and provided six assists in 14 matches this season in Serie A.

But it it his generous contributions off the pitch in Croatia which will have won him plenty of new fans.
