Football club owner’s son, 23, found dead in London apartment day before new job

A football club owner has been left mourning over his son's sudden death after he was found lifeless in a luxury apartment in London.

Armando Zamparini was discovered inside his Mayfair home after his father was unable to get through to him that same day.

The 23-year-old was tragically found dead just a day before he was meant to start his new job at a multinational company.

His father Maurizio Zamparini, former president of Palermo football club, sent his son a good luck message on Thursday but never received a response.

He told La Repubblica: "I never received an answer. Because Armandino died the day before yesterday. It is an infinite tragedy."

Armando, who had a master's degree in management, was discovered by a maid who called an ambulance on Thursday, according to Italian newspaper Corriere.

He was the youngest out of Zamparini's five children but was the only child he shared with partner Laura Giordani.

It is believed that the devastated dad is making his way to London with Laura, reports The Sun.

His mother also released a statement, which read: "My angel Armando is gone. Armando passed away peacefully in his apartment in Mayfair."
