Women’s football in Italy is in mourning as Riozzese player Arianna Varone has died at the age of just 21.
Varone tragically lost her life in a road accident while she was riding her scooter last night.
“She will leave an unbridgeable void in the lives of those who loved her and were lucky enough to be around her. Goodbye, Arianna,” the FIGC wrote in her memory.
The 21-year-old was a midfielder who began her career with Inter and had a stint with arch-rivals Milan before signing for Riozzese in 2017.
Last season, she helped the team win the Coppa Italia Serie C and gain promotion to Serie B.
