Former Inter youth player Maicol Lentini has died aged just 15 after a long battle with illness.
Lentini was forced to leave Inter in January 2017 due to the condition and had been unable to play since.
Although he was believed to have been making good progress, it was confirmed on Monday that he had passed away at his home in Pavia.
“Everyone at FC Internazionale Milano shares the grief over the death of Maicol Lentini,” read a statement on the Nerazzurri’s official website.
“Owners, directors, the Nerazzurri youth sector, of which Maicol was a part, the team and fans gather around his family on this day of great pain.”
