Paris Saint-German defender Davi Alves has had some very insensitive words to say about the tragic death of Davide Astori.

On the eve of PSG’s Champions League second leg clash with Real Madrid Alves was asked about the death of Astor, which happened on Sunday.

The 31-year-old Italy defender was found dead in his hotel room in Udine on Sunday, hours before his Fiorentina team were due to face Udinese in a Serie A fixture.

A post mortem will be performed on Tuesday with Astori’s funeral being held at the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence on Thursday morning, Fiorentina announced in a statement.

Alves told a press conference, as translated from Calciomercato: “We were not disturbed too much because we did not know him very much, I am sorry for his family.

“I think that David has done what he owed in this chaotic world and that now he is in a better world. But in the world every day thousands of children who do not receive much attention die of hunger and they are just as important.

“We all have to die sooner or later because we are passing through. Maybe we are sad, but certainly not like his family.”


Sometimes when you have nothing good to say, it’s worth not saying anything…
