Referee Amendolia dies

Former Serie A and international referee Angelo Amendolia has died at the age of 60.

The Messina-based official was one of the most visible figures in the Italian game during the 1990s.

He made his Serie A debut in 1987 and from 1991 was an international, officiating Champions League games.

He oversaw 108 Serie A matches, including the Rome derby, Juventus-Inter and Milan-Roma, before becoming a television pundit.

Amendolia has died from an incurable illness, aged just 60.

Meanwhile, the FIGC have announced there will be a minute’s silence before every game this weekend in memory of those who died when the Costa Concordia cruise ship ran aground near the Giglio island last night.
