Nantes goalie, Ciprian Tatarusanu has branded the lack of a minute’s silence in respect of Fiorentina captain, Davide Astori, who passed away on Sunday, before his side’s clash against Marseille.
The 32-year-old shot-stopper was a teammate of the defender, who died in his sleep ahead of Fiorentina’s clash against Udinese.
All matches in the Serie A were postponed as a sign of respect to the fallen Astori. But there was no form of remembrance in France.
“It’s the worst day of my life. There was no moment of silence after the death of my former team-mate and friend Davide Astori,” the goalkeeper fired after the 1-1 draw at Stade Velodrome, in which OM had pinched a 95th-minute equaliser through Florian Thauvin.
“It’s a scandal, a lack of respect.
“After such a drama, football and the result don’t matter. There will be other matches.”
