Fiorentina general manager joe barone hospitalized on life support after cardiac arrest.

Fiorentina, a Serie A club, announced on Monday that their general manager, Joe Barone, remains hospitalized on life support following a cardiac arrest.

The postponement of Fiorentina’s Serie A match against Atalanta on Sunday was prompted by Barone’s collapse as the team was departing from their hotel.

Barone, who is set to turn 58 on Wednesday, was swiftly transported to a hospital in Milan for medical attention.

In an official statement, Fiorentina revealed, “Joe’s vital functions are being supported by artificial mechanical support techniques. No prognosis has been set.”

The club and football community continue to rally support and offer thoughts for Barone’s recovery during this critical period.
