The Italian football world lost not only a captain, an Italy international, but a father.
Fiorentina’s 31-year-old Captain Davide Astori passed away in his sleep on Sunday morning. The exact cause of death is unknown.
“Fiorentina are profoundly shaken and forced to announce that their captain Davide Astori has died. For this terrible and delicate situation, and above all out of respect for his family, we appeal to the sensitivity of the media.”
Astori leaves behind his long-time girlfriend Francesca Fioretti and his daughter, Vittoria.
