Stefano Piolay:Now we will play for Astori
Fiorentina coach Stefano Piochi speaks exclusively for the captain of violet Davide Astori, who died a week ago, at today`s press conference of the team. La Viola takes Benetton`s team on Sunday at 13:30. of Artemio Franky. The specialist did not want to answer the questions of the journalists gathered in the press room and conducted a monologue in which he expressed his condolences to the Astori family:
I had the luck and the privilege to know him during these months. He was a great man and a captain. He always found the right way to say things to me and his colleagues. He was generous, positive, and always available. Unfortunately, I managed to be with him for a very short time. I will miss every day. I support David`s parents, because if David was one we knew, it was because of them. I do not have the right words to support his family, but I can promise that we will always be at odds. Sometimes our fans have too much language, but their hearts are huge. I would like to embrace them one by one. I also want to thank the entire football world for showing solidarity. My team is crying because Davide was their captain. But we know how to honor David. Now we have to play for him, for us. I believe he owned a seed that contained unity, passion and love for La Viola. It`s our job to protect this seed and keep it for David`s sake, `said Pioles.
