A teenage football prodigy who died in a car accident has left Italian football in mourning.

After the unfortunate event on Saturday night, Livorno player Anwar Megbli passed dead in the hospital on Monday.

The 18-year-old striker was on the back of a friend’s moped when it collided with a car.

He was transported by helicopter to the Cisanello hospital in Pisa, where doctors were unable to rescue the young man.

In the hospital, Megbli’s friend is getting better.

Investigators have begun looking into the 30-year-old automobile driver.

US Livorno 1915, a team from Serie D which last competed in Serie A in 2014, initially paid tribute to Megbli on social media.

The Tuscany club wrote about the footballer: “No, one can’t just die at the age of 18.

“Today Anwar Megbli lost his life following a tragic road accident on Saturday night.

“He was an 18-year-old striker in US Livorno’s junior side, and he was included in the senior squad several times during the current season.

“Everyone at the club sends their deepest condolences to his family in this moment of profound sorrow.

“Farewell, champ.  You will always be one of us.”

Italian-based USD Castiglioncello, Megbli’s old team, also sent their condolences.

They shared a photo of the forward jubilating with his teammates after a victory, stating, “We want to remember you this way, celebrating a derby win thanks to your fantastic left foot.”
