Stefano Salvatori

1st November 2017

Heart of Midlothian Football Club is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of former player Stefano Salvatori.

The Italian midfielder joined Hearts in 1996 and spent three years at Tynecastle, winning the hearts of supporters with commanding displays in the middle of the park.

He wrote his name into Hearts folklore by helping the Jambos to lift the 1998 Scottish Cup with a 2-1 win over Rangers, and in the process earning himself legendary status in Gorgie.

The club would like to pass on its condolences to the family and friends of Stefano, and a full tribute will appear on the club website later today.
