Emiliano Sala Confirmed Dead
This was announced hours after a body was recovered from the wreckage of the plane carrying the footballer and pilot David Ibbotson.
The plane which went missing on January 21 was carrying Sala and Ibbotson, from Nantes to the Welsh capital.
The investigation to find the plane was initially called off after three days, but Sala’s family raised the funds to keep the search alive, with thanks to donations from the international football community, Mirror Sports reports.
Sala’s sister, Romina Sala on Friday took to Instagram to pay tribute to him.
“Your soul in my soul it will shine forever thus illuminating the time of my existence. I love you, tito,” she wrote.
On the other hand, Cardiff City gave their condolences: “We offer our most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano.
“He and David will forever remain in our thoughts.”
