MILAN (AP) - Livorno president Aldo Spinelli is considering setting up a life annuity for the sister of Piermario Morosini, who died after suffering cardiac arrest during the Serie B match at Pescara.

Morosini, who was on loan from Serie A side Udinese, collapsed in the 31st minute of the match on Saturday.

Livorno director of soccer Attilio Perotti says Spinelli wants to “show his personal desire and that of the club to always remain close to Piermario’s family.”

The club is also considering retiring Morosini’s No. 25 shirt.

Morosini was orphaned in his teens. His mother died when he was 15 and his father died two years later. His brother died shortly afterward, too. The only remaining family members are an older, disabled sister and an elderly aunt.
