      Don't really follow Italian football myself but this is shocking, it seems to be a regular occurance with footballers collapsing on the pitch :(

      RIP

      Makes you wonder what has changed to make this happen more often.
      Do they play to many games now or what.

      It's either they play too many games and are not given enough rest between them or there is some checks that are not being completed that need to either be made essential or need to be added in.

      It won't be anything to do with them having to many games, many people just have heart problems that aren't easily diagnosed.

      Wouldn't say it's a huge amount but it's definitely too much, does make you wonder why. Hopefully they will soon find out why.

      I personally feel more checks should be carried out to check for more things like hear conditions and such, but whether that is possible I am unsure.
