Palermo youth Coach dies

Palermo are in mourning after the death of youth team Coach Luigi Pecoraro, who suffered an aneurysm on Friday.

The 46-year-old tactician fell ill at home and was rushed to hospital by his family.

However, late Friday night he suffered a cardiac arrest and died.

Pecoraro had been the Coach of the Palermo Esordienti team in their youth academy.

On Sunday all the levels of the Palermo squad will wear black armbands and hold a minute’s silence ahead of their games.

His funeral will be held on Monday.
