The agent of Piermario Morosini has spoken of his difficult life.

The 25-year-old Udinese midfielder collapsed during the Pescara-LivornoSerie B match. He had lost both parents before turning 18 and his brother committed suicide.

"He was a young man who suffered so much and just wanted a little happiness, but yesterday he was told it wasn't possible," said agent Ernesto Randazzo.

"Such a polite and very sweet person who always spoke quietly, but at the same time knew how to make sure he was respected. He was a special person."
