Despite an autopsy on Monday, there are still no clear answers as to why Piermario Morosini collapsed on the pitch during Livorno's match against Pescara on Saturday. The 25-year-old failed to regain consciousness and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Reports first suggested that Morosini had died from cardiac arrest, but later it emerged that a clash of heads with another player had possibly triggered an aneurysm. However, the coroner could find no clear cause of death, meaning that further investigation will follow -- even a toxicology report.
In happier news, Udinese, Morosini's parent club, have announced they will look after Mario's sister, who is seriously ill and relied upon the player for financial support. Their parents died years ago and their brother committed suicide, so it is Udinese who will step in and care for his sister for the rest of her life.
Finally, Livorno will retire Mario's number, 25, as will Vicenza, where he also played.
