Former Lazio midfielder Dario Marcolin has lost his 75-year-old father, Giancarlo, to Coronavirus.
The current DAZN commentator’s father was included in the list of 921 COVID-19 casualties of Brescia, reported by the health authorities.
The statistic doesn’t include the deaths of people who weren’t tested but have experienced the symptoms compatible with the Coronavirus.
Corriere della Sera reports that almost 100 deaths have occurred in the nursing homes of the city and region in recent weeks.
Born in Brescia, Lombardy, Marcolin started his career with Cremonese and earned himself a move to Lazio in July 1992.
The former Cagliari, Genoa and Napoli player has also experienced a six-month stint at Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League back in 1999.
Before becoming a commentator for DAZN, Marcolin had spells as head coach of Modena, Padova, Catania and Avellino.
