Cagliari and Fiorentina fund Astori charity

Cagliari and Fiorentina have announced they are creating a five-a-side football pitch in Bethlehem for all children to come together in the name of Davide Astori.

The defender died a year ago at the age of 31 of an undiagnosed cardiac irregularity.

These two clubs are where he spent most of his career and they play each other on Friday evening.

In his honour, it was announced today that Cagliari and Fiorentina will combine their efforts to set up a five-a-side football pitch in Bethlehem alongside the Friendship and Peace Playground.

All children are encouraged to play together, regardless of ethnicity, religion or colour of skin.
