Fiorentina rename training ground after late captain Astori

18 March 2018 16:05

Fiorentina are to rename the club's training ground after Davide Astori following the club captain's shock death.

Viola president Mario Cognigni confirmed the move ahead of Sunday's Serie A match at Torino.

"It will no longer be called Campini, but Sports Centre Davide Astori," Cognigni told Premium Sport.

"This was his home - the place where he went very often, even with his family, to spend a few hours of leisure.

"This is the first of many initiatives to remember a special person like him."

Astori passed away in his hotel room hours ahead of a scheduled Serie A match with Udinese on March 4.

An autopsy showed the 31-year-old died from natural causes that led to heart problems.
