Astori bids farewell to Cagliari

Newly acquired center-back Davide Astori wrote a letter to the fans of Cagliari. The defender spent 6 seasons with the Sardinian club before being sold to Roma last week:

“I could write a novel, but I’ll use a few words to thank all the people who made my six years in Cagliari extraordinary. I thank the fans who have struggled and suffered with me…in fact, with us! I thank my teammates, the Cagliari Calcio company and my family. I’m now beginning a new adventure for myself, but my heart will always be with you. Forza Casteddu!”
