- Tommaso Trani, on the books of QPR between 2011 and 2013, died peacefully following a short illness
- He joined the R's after spending time with Italian giants AC Milan
- Thoughts with his family and friends at this extremely-challenging time
THE club have been deeply saddened to learn that former youth-team goalkeeper Tommaso Trani has tragically passed away at the age of just 21.
Registered with QPR as a professional between 2011 and 2013, he originally came over to England from his native Italy after spending two seasons in the youth set-up at AC Milan.
He returned to his homeland when his contract expired at Loftus Road.
This morning (Thursday 12th November 2015), he died peacefully following a short illness.
Interim first team head coach Neil Warnock, who was QPR manager when Tommaso first joined the R’s back in 2011, told us: “This is absolutely tragic news. Tommaso was such a lovely, lovely lad.
“When something terrible like this happens it opens everybody’s eyes to the fact that football is only a game. There is nothing more important than your health.
“It gives us all a sense of perspective, particularly as he was so young. My thoughts are with his family.”
Indeed, the thoughts of everyone at QPR are with Tommaso’s family and friends at this extremely-difficult time.
May he rest in peace.
