Fiorentina have created a trust fund to help support the daughter of late captain Davide Astori, the Italian club said on Saturday.
"With this gesture we hope that we will display in the name of the team and the fans the love and respect we all hold towards Davide."
On Sunday, Fiorentina play their final home game of the season against Cagliari, a team where Astori began his professional career and played for six seasons.
Players from the Sardinian team on Saturday paid tribute to Astori by placing flowers outside the Artemio Franchi Stadium, where hundreds of scarves, banners and drawings pay tribute to the former international.
