Lazio have announced the tragic death of their midfielder Daniel Guerini at the age of 19 after he was involved in a car crash in Rome.

It has been reported that the accident took place at around 8pm local time on Wednesday with two others also involved in the crash and thought to be in a critical condition.

Lazio tweeted on Wednesday evening: "We are shocked by the pain. The president and all the people involved with Lazio are together with the family of the young Daniel Guerini."

Guerini had started his career in Lazio's youth system before joining Torino on a free transfer in 2016.

He then went between Torino and Fiorentina's youth setups before spending the first few months of last year on loan at SPAL.

But he rejoined Lazio permanently in January, signing a three-year contract with the club, and also represented Italy at Under-15 and Under-16 levels.

Torino also paid their respects to Guerini, tweeting: "The President Urbano Cairo and the whole Torino Football Club, incredulous and deeply saddened, gather around the Guerini family for the tragic death of Daniel, our former Primavera player."

Hellas Verona FC added: "Hellas Verona expresses deep condolences and heartfelt closeness to Lazio for the tragic death of Daniel Guerini."

Guerini had only turned 19 on Sunday, and was a highly-rated young player who had big things expected of him in Italy.
