PSG midfielder Marco Verratti has replaced a €10,000 computer allowing a nine-year-old child to communicate after it was stolen.

The Italy international read about the appeal sent out by the boy’s father and immediately worked to get the funds into their account.

The situation developed in Bologna, where a school was burgled twice in the same week, thieves taking away computers, projectors and special equipment allowing nine-year-old Andrea D’Osso to communicate with teachers and students.

PSG midfielder Marco Verratti has replaced a €10,000 computer allowing a nine-year-old child to communicate after it was stolen.

The Italy international read about the appeal sent out by the boy’s father and immediately worked to get the funds into their account.

The situation developed in Bologna, where a school was burgled twice in the same week, thieves taking away computers, projectors and special equipment allowing nine-year-old Andrea D’Osso to communicate with teachers and students.

Verratti saw the appeal from the child’s father, Gianluca, to return the laptop not just for the equipment, but also the software on it specially tailored to the boy’s needs.

The Corriere di Bologna newspaper discovered the anonymous benefactor who called up and wired over €10,000 to the school was Verratti.

“I thanked him personally over the phone,” confirmed Gianluca D’Osso. “We said that, when we have the chance, we’ll find a way for him to meet Andrea. It’d be an honour for us.”
