Fiorentina And Cagliari Retire Astori’s Number 13 Shirt

Fiorentina and Cagliari will retire the number 13 shirt worn by defender Davide Astori, the Italian international who died over the weekend at the age of 31.


Astori, who made 289 Serie A appearances in 10 seasons and played 14 times for the national team, joined Fiorentina on loan in 2015. The club signed him outright one year later and he went on to become their captain.


He previously spent six seasons at Cagliari and one on loan at AS Roma.


An autopsy on Tuesday reportedly showed he probably died from a cardiac arrest linked to a slowing heart rate.


Astori was found dead in his hotel room on Sunday in Udine where Fiorentina had been due to play Udinese. Serie A postponed all Sunday’s matches.


Italian public prosecutors said on Monday they are to open proceedings to determine whether Astori’s death could be considered as manslaughter.


Astori leaves a wife and a two-year-old daughter.
