He was a member of the AC Milan and Benevento youth academies, but in 2016 he chose to put his football career on hold for a while in order to focus on his schooling. However, Visin was recently discovered dead in his home at Italy, despite the fact that he was only 20 years old.
Visin's motivation for suicide was disclosed in a sorrowful letter he penned before committing suicide. In the letter Visin wrote “Now, wherever I go, wherever I am, wherever I am I feel on my shoulders, like a boulder, the weight of people’s sceptical, prejudiced, disgusted and frightened looks".
According to the letter Visin said he was also subjected to racism by some of the persons he met during his life. He claimed he felt compelled to prove to Italians he met that he was not an immigrant like the rest of the people that come to Italy, and that he also felt compelled to prove that he was white at times.
And sometimes he was “ashamed of being black, as if I was afraid of being mistaken for an immigrant”, he said in the letter.
The letter was read at his funeral.
