Filippo Romagna will wear the Number 56 jersey for the rest of the season after Cagliari retired Davide Astori’s Number 13.
Astori wore that number both at Cagliari and Fiorentina, so the two clubs have retired the shirt following Astori’s sudden death.
He died in his sleep last Sunday in the team hotel and his funeral was held on Thursday.
Cagliari required special dispensation from the Lega Serie A to retire the Number 13 shirt, as Romagna had already been wearing it this season.
The authorities granted it today and for the rest of the campaign, their defender Romagna will wear 56 instead.
