Mourning in Serie A: Fiorentina boss is dead

On Sunday, Joe Barone had to be taken to the hospital; his condition was critical from the start. Now the Fiorentina boss is dead.

The manager of the Italian first division soccer team AC Fiorentina, Joe Barone, died on Tuesday at the age of 57 after a cardiac arrest. This was announced by the current eighth-placed Serie A player. The club's general director collapsed on Sunday shortly before the start of the first division game at Atalanta. Barone was immediately taken to a hospital in Milan and underwent surgery. However, the hope that he would get well again was not fulfilled.

In a statement, the club mourned the loss of a formative personality “who will never be forgotten.” Barone was “always close by, both in the happiest and the most difficult times.”

With Fiorentina since 2019

The Sicilian native had spent many years in the USA and was also vice president of Cosmos New York, Franz Beckenbauer's former club. He has worked at AC Fiorentina since 2019. Barone leaves behind a wife and children. Fiorentina's game against Atalanta was canceled. There is no new date yet.
