Arsenal Have Included An Incredible Tribute To Emiliano Sala In Their Match-Day Programme

Arsenal have shown pure class in their match-day programme after they included a special tribute for missing footballer Emiliano Sala.

A Twitter user tweeted an image of the programme, which shows the Cardiff City players and has a nod to the 28-year-old Argentine forward being part of their squad.

Instead of a shirt number, however, the Gunners have included a flower next to his name.

Check it out below.

It's absolute class from the Gunners.

"Nice touch by Arsenal, all our thoughts are with @CardiffCityFC tonight," one Twitter user wrote.

A second tweeted: "On the Arsenal programme tonight. Nice touch."

A third said: "Touch of class from Arsenal that, fair play!"

A fourth added: "Class act."

The former Nantes star and pilot David Ibbotson were travelling on an aircraft that went missing over the Channel Islands.

Since the incident took place, tributes have continued to pour in from football fans around the world. During a match at the Parc des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain fans sang the footballer's name.

SPORTbible would like to send out its condolences to the families and friends of Mr Sala and Mr Ibbotson during this difficult time.
