Tragic news came when Seid Visin was found dead. He is a former AC Milan player who also was in the ranks of Benevento.
According to Corriere della Sera, the young boy left a suicide note highlighting the racist abuse that led him to take his own life:
“Wherever I go, I feel the weight of the sceptical, biased, disgusted and frightened glances of people. I am not an immigrant. I was adopted when I was a child and I remember everybody used to love me. Everywhere I went, everybody was talking to me with joy, respect and curiosity. Now it seems that everything has turned upside down.”
“I had been able to find a job which I had to leave because too many people, especially the older ones, refused service by me. As if I was not already not feeling at ease, they accused me of being responsible because many young (and white) Italians were not able to find a job.”
Update: The player’s father broke the silence over the letter and his son’s cause of death. You can read it here.
