As it became known, today, March 11, “violets” met with “Benevento”, and the referee stopped the match on the 13th minute.
At this time on tribunes fans have posted the inscription “David 13”, as this number was made by Davide Astori.
It is noted that both teams took to the field in special t-shirts in memory of the captain of Fiorentina. As a result, the arena of the stadium drowned in colorful flowers and applause. The new captain of Fiorentina Milan Badel before the meeting of the 28th round of the Italian championship with Benevento said that he would do everything in his power to convey in the game the best qualities of the tragically departed David Astori. Recall that the former captain "violet" died March 4 in her sleep at the age of 31 years.
- I will try to do everything possible to not just keep his spirit, but also to make sure that all those who were close to him, he felt – leads Football Italia words Badel. – We will try to invest in our work everything he has always done: hard work, spirit and determination. I'll try to pass it on to the team. It was Astori who kept us all together and helped this relatively new and young team grow fast. We want to keep his wonderful work.
