Sol Bamba Gives Heartbreaking Interview About The Tragic Disappearance Of Emiliano Sala

Cardiff City play their first game since the tragic disappearance of Emiliano Sala on Tuesday, and Sol Bamba has spoke ahead of 'The Blue Birds' trip to Arsenal.

Neil Warnock takes his charges to the Emirates on Tuesday for Cardiff's Premier League game against Arsenal, and it'll be the first time his side have been in action since the Sala incident.

The Welsh outfit signed Sala for a club record £15 million but upon returning to Cardiff from Nantes, the striker went missing across the English Channel along with pilot, Dave Ibbotson.

It'll no doubt be an emotional evening in London when Cardiff take to the field, and Bamba has issued some words on the mood around the club.

"It's a human tragedy and if you're human, you're going to be hurt by it," he said.

The towering-defender added: "You're right to feel like that, it's a tragedy. If you've got a heart, you're going to be affected by it.

"From the minute he signed for us and came to see the boys to say hello, he was part of us, so everyone feels like he is part of the team.

"Obviously training was called off when we heard, but the next day we got together and everyone was in shock.

"It was a tough week for everyone, we've all been hurt and affected by it. Everyone got together and obviously everyone has been talking to make sure we're all OK. But it was a tough week.

"I've never seen the dressing room that quiet, everyone was so sad and it was a shock really.

"We have to hope, even if the chances are very slim, but we like to think there can be a happy ending hopefully."

Cardiff, who occupy a relegation spot, resume their league campaign against the Gunners.
