CATANIA – Giuseppe Rizza (33 years), professional footballer with a past in Juventus Primavera , is in a coma.
Rizza suffered from a brain hemorrhage and was rushed to the Cannizzaro hospital in Catania.
Now Rizza is in this hospital in a pharmacological coma.
As said, Rizza began his career as a footballer in the Juventus youth team.
The footballer, who now plays in the Amateurs in the Netina Rebirth, was part of Juventus Primavera who won the Italian Super Cup in 2006.
While the Italian National Football Team won the last World Cup in its history, Rizza raised the Italian Super Cup to Juventus in the sky, dreaming of a great career.
That team was really strong since it was made up of players who then had a great career.
At Chiarenza orders, Juventus Primavera could deploy players of the caliber Marchisio , Giovinco, Criscito and De Ceglie.
Rizza was an important player on that team given that Chiarenza often deployed him as the owner.
Despite this, Juventus decided to send him to play around Italy.
The bianconeri maintained control of his card for two years but then in 2008 they ceded it to Livorno in Serie B (the same fate fell to other young people).
Before moving to Livorno, in Serie B, Rizza played an excellent season with Juve Stabia in Serie C (25 appearances and 1 goal).
In Livorno he remained for four years, until 2012, but he could not find much space.
Before we get into Amateurs, former player of Juventus Primavera has also played with:
Arezzo, Pergocrema (twice), again Juve Stabia and Nocerina.
The news of his coma shook his old teammates who wanted to incite him with messages posted on social networks.
Among the players who posted a message we mention Marchisio, Giovinco, Criscito, Totti, Pisacane, Bettega and Diego Armando Maradona Junior (source tuttosport.com).
