Genoa defender Criscito: I was on bridge 10 minutes before collapse

Genoa defender Domenico Criscito has revealed he was on the Ponte Morandi bridge just ten minutes before it collapsed.

At least 20 people have been killed both on the bridge and in the houses below.

“I write this message for all those who are writing to me, worried about me and my family," Criscito wrote on Instagram.

“We're all fine, even though we crossed that bridge exactly 10 minutes before the collapse.

“My thoughts are with all the families of the victims, it's not possible for a bridge on a motorway to collapse like this - NOT POSSIBLE!

“We need to do something for this country, people flee because of these things. We need security, we need someone to do something.

“This is disgusting!"
