According to initial information from the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Florentine leader was said to have suffered a heart attack. The situation is said to be very serious and the first reports are raising concerns.

The League and the clubs discussed the possibility of playing or not the match scheduled for this Sunday evening. The entire Fiorentina staff, visibly in shock, requested its postponement.
