Ex-Parma footballer Giuseppe Perino oollapses while playing and dies at 29

Italian footballer Giuseppe Perino died at the age of 29 this past June while playing in a memorial match for his late brother. Paramedics quickly arrived to the scene but was later pronounced dead after suffering a heart attack.

It came only three years after Giuseppe's brother, Rocco, died suddenly at the age of 24. Perino played for Parma for 10 years and the club was devastated after he died. "The thoughts of everyone at Parma Calcio 1913 go out to the Perrino family, following the loss of Giuseppe," Parma stated.

The whole Parma felt sad for Perino

Local mayor Maurizio Falanga wrote on his Facebook page: "Today marks our Republic Day. An important event for us and for our history. "Unfortunately Poggiomarino mourns the passing of his young son who reunites with his beloved brother Rocco.

"Last night we preferred to cancel the tricolor lighting ceremony on the facade of the municipal house in conjunction with the tragic news. "There are no words to express the sympathy for the family already so hard hit.

On this day that was supposed to be a celebration, I express the closeness of our entire community to the passing of young Giuseppe." Parma played in Seria A last year but were relegated following a bad season. Currently, Milan is one the best teams in Seria and a top contender to win the title.

Also, Milan are playing well in the Champions League as they beat Atletico Madrid after a late Junior Messias goal. Messias, 30, made his professional debut just three years ago. "His story is wonderful," Milan coach Stefano Pioli told Amazon Prime Video Italia.

"But I think this is just the beginning for him, because he has real quality. "He had some difficulties when he first arrived, but now will really help the team. Legendary Milan manager Arrigo Sacchi was full of praise for Milan after the Atletico win.

“Pioli’s Milan beat Atletico and now they have hope. The match was balanced in the first half, with few chances for both sides. The second half was like the first until Ibrahimovic entered, who gave the Rossoneri confidence and energised the match," Sacchi stated.

“Pioli’s men had the chance after a few minutes to score with Bakayoko, but the shot was weak and straight at the keeper. However, they did not lose confidence and on a magnificent cross from Kessie, Messias rushed in, scoring. AC Milan got their revenge for the undeserved defeat at San Siro. They are on the right path."
