Fiorentina owner Della Valle on Astori: A tragedy

Fiorentina owner Diego Della Valle admits Davide Astori's passing has left him stunned.

The Fiorentina captain passed away on Sunday morning after a heart attack. He was 31.

Della Valle said: "There is not much to say, it is a tragedy and we respect the moment ... a wonderful guy, he was a first-rate boy, a beautiful family and a beautiful family like that produced him.

"And it was superfluous to talk about the new contract or not, he would have been great anyway."
