Hearts Fans to Honour Stefano Salvatori With a Plaque in Club’s Memorial Garden

Hearts Fans to Honour Stefano Salvatori With a Plaque in Club’s Memorial Garden

Hearts fans are set to pay tribute to their former midfielder Stefano Salvatori this afternoon, by unveiling a memorial plaque outside Tynecastle.

Salvatori, who was part of the Hearts side which tasted Scottish Cup glory in 1998, died at the beginning of November following an illness.

At the time of the 48-year-old’s death, his former club posted a glowing tribute via their website,  reminding fans that Salvatori “wrote his name into Hearts folklore by helping the Jambos to lift the 1998 Scottish Cup”

And it appears the club’s supporters are keen to go one step further in honouring the former AC Milan player, as journalist and Hearts supporter @ffppaul revealed on Twitter:

The club’s museum is also set to play a tribute video to Salvatori throughout the afternoon:

Salvatori made 84 appearances in total for Hearts in all competitions, scoring three goals, before returning home and finishing his playing career in the lower divisions of Italian football.
