Lazio Creating a ‘Daniel Guerini Award’ for the Youth System

By Apollo Heyes -

Lazio are creating an award for the youth system that will also serve as a memorial to Daniel Guerini.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the Biancocelesti’s new initiative will see some players of the youth system win the ‘Daniel Guerini award’ to celebrate their achievements within the club.

The award, named after the 19-year-old Italian footballer who sadly passed away in March of this year, will be presented on 20th December during the football gala.

Earlier this year, memorabilia and personal items were stolen from his grave during the night, prompting outrage amongst the Lazio community.

His funeral was held in Rome earlier this year and was attended by many first-team Lazio players, including Senad Lulic, Pepe Reina, Danilo Cataldi and former coach Simone Inzaghi.

Guerini was a promising youngster in the Lazio Primavera squad and was held in high esteem by all of those who knew him.
