Fiorentina to risk fine with Davide Astori captain's armband tribute despite Serie A rules

Fabio Quagliarella may have already won goal of the season with his stunner against Napoli, but who joins him in the top five in Week 3 of Serie A?

Fiorentina are ready to risk a fine and continue to honour deceased former captain Davide Astori, despite a new Serie A ruling.

The Italian league announced on Tuesday that if captains don't wear the standardised armbands -- plain white strips with blue borders featuring the words, "capitano," and the Serie A logo -- they will start receiving fines.

Fiorentina full-back Cristiano Biraghi says an armband dedicated to Astori worn by captain German Pezzella "represents us and should never be put up for discussion."

Biraghi added: "If the league judge fines us we'll pay the fine."

Astori, Fiorentina's former captain, died in March of a suspected cardiac arrest.

The armband being worn by Pezzella has Astori's No. 13 printed on it, surrounded by symbols of the four historic neighbourhoods of Florence.

Roma captain Daniele De Rossi and Atalanta counterpart Alejandro "Papu" Gomez have also been defying the rules by wearing personalised armbands.

De Rossi has been wearing one featuring the words of a chant sung by fans in the Stadio Olimpico's curva sud (southern end). Gomez recently posted on Instagram a selection of the many armbands he has created and worn, adding that "unfortunately in football today, the players count for less and less."
