Livorno retire shirt for Morosini

Livorno have announced that the No 25 jersey will be withdrawn from use following the death of Piermario Morosini.

The midfielder tragically collapsed and died of a heart-attack during Saturday’s Serie B game against Pescara.

The retiring of the Italian’s shirt number was expected and has now been confirmed by the Amaranto.

“AS Livorno Calcio communicate that the ‘25’ will be retired forever from our official numbering to honour the memory of Piermario Morosini,” read a brief statement.

Vicenza, who Morosini also played for, have taken the same step with their No 25 shirt.
