Treviso midfielder Mingozzi killed in car crash

Serie B club Treviso are mourning the death of midfielder Gionata Mingozzi who was killed in a car crash on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old died at the scene after his Porsche collided with a truck while on his way to his team's training ground to undergo a pre-season medical.

Mingozzi made 17 appearances for Treviso last season, having made his debut in Italy's top flight with Sampdoria in the 2005-06 campaign.

'It is with profound sorrow that we unite in the pain of the family, friends and all those who had the privilege of knowing Mingozzi in this brief life,' said a statement from Treviso.
