"I cried many times".

Some of the best footballers on the planet joined 8,000 Fiorentina football fans to give "the last ciao" to Davide Astori, the Italian defender who died earlier this month.

A popular figure at his former clubs, including AC Milan, Cagliari and Roma, Astori's unexpected passing has prompted emotional tributes to be offered by the likes of Juventus and Italy great Gianluigi Buffon.

MILAN BADELJ is expected to take over the role of captain from Astori, while Victor Hugo will be in contention to take his place in the side on Sunday. "Davide, you are simple, direct, pragmatic", said the Viola midfielder.

"Davide, with your eyes you can get inside people and stay there". From now, we will always have two, always. You have the gift of the universal language of the heart.

"Your parents didn't make any mistake with you, not even the tiniest bit". If you're like that, it's because they transmitted it to you.


"You are the brother or the son that everyone would have wanted to have".

"How can we forget your laughter, your sense of humour?" He was the number one in so many ways, his death really hit me hard.

"Our thoughts go to your family, to Francesca and to princess Victoria".

"In the morning, in the physiotherapy room, you were always to turn on the light". But in the world every day thousands of children who do not receive much attention die of hunger and they are just as important.

Pochettino has first-hand experience of a similarly tragic event.

Bezants added some fans arrived to line the streets up to three hours before the start of the service, while thousands applauded and chanted as Astori's coffin was driven past Stadio Artemio Franchi, the home of Fiorentina. It feels like one of my players is gone. "We fight everywhere with courage and valour".
