"At this moment in time, there is no individual with responsibilities that appear to correspond to anything".
Black Stars players Jordan Ayew and Kwadwo Asamoah have joined in the growing list of footballers paying tribute to the late Davide Astori. Fiorentina was slated to play Udinese on Sunday, one of seven Serie A fixtures postponed for the week.
Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle had earlier said Astori was due to sign a new contract with the club on Monday which would have kept him there for the rest of his career.
The Serie A club announced the move on Tuesday, while also confirming that Astori's former club Cagliari would also do the same.
His former club Cagliari, for whom he played 174 games over six seasons, has also made a decision to honour the former Italy global with the same gesture.
A shirt was also pinned up in his honour, with his ex-team-mates all signing the jersey as they paid their respect to the 14-cap worldwide.
Broadcom Cries Foul As Qualcomm Delays Shareholder Vote On Takeover
Qualcomm officials said that notwithstanding Broadcom's dismissive rhetoric, "this is a very serious matter for both" companies. Broadcom has accused Qualcomm of failing to negotiate seriously, saying they were involved in "engagement theater".
Astori scored his only worldwide goal in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup third-place playoff against Uruguay, giving Italy a first-half lead in a match that finished 2-2. "R.I.P., Your insane Gigi". He said: "You always smiled as you were an honest, down-to-earth person".
"In your case, I feel I have to make an exception to my rule, because you have a young wife and family members who are suffering, but especially your little girl, who deserves to know that her father was in all respects a PERFECT PERSON".
"I think that David has done what he owed in this chaotic world and that now he is in a better world".
"Genuine compliments, you were one of the best sporting figures I ever came up against".
"After such a drama, football and the result don't matter". We are all in shock.
Shortly after the sad news of his passing was confirmed, a story began circulating online that the club had indefinitely extended his contract and donated the salary to his partner Francesca and their two-year-old daughter Vittoria. We mourn. We remember.
