Lazio President Lotito: “Our Colours Are in Mourning for Guerini”

Lazio president Claudio Lotito highlighted the Biancocelesti’s sadness at the passing of Primavera midfielder Daniel Guerini.

In an official statement released yesterday, the Lazio president spoke highly of the 19-year-old Italian.

Today was an extraordinarily sad day for our club. Our colours are in mourning, there were no smiles on the boys’ faces. Daniel was a wonderful guy, appreciated by all who knew him for his human qualities even more than for his footballing ones.

He had what it takes to become a good professional, embodying those values of loyalty and fairness that are the basis of the education of every player.

Lazio is a big family that today is grief-stricken, but knows that the memory of Daniel will always be kept alive, the memory of a young champion who died too soon.

The 19-year-old Guerini sadly passed away earlier this week after his Smart car was involved in a traffic collision at a junction in Rome.
