Footballers And Footballing Figures Unite In Sending Heartfelt Tributes To Emiliano Sala

Footballers And Footballing Figures Unite In Sending Heartfelt Tributes To Emiliano Sala

The footballing world is in mourning after the body of missing footballer Emiliano Sala was recovered from the plane wreckage and identified on Thursday.

The 28-year-old Argentine forward was travelling on the aircraft with pilot David Ibbotson when it went missing over the Channel Islands last month.

While the 59-year-old pilot's future remains uncertain -- and we pray that he is found safe and well -- their disappearance has sent shockwaves throughout the footballing world.

Dorset Police and the HM Coroner for Dorset confirmed that it was the former Nantes star's body that had been recovered.

Sala's new club, Cardiff City, who he signed for in the January transfer window, took to Twitter to release a heartfelt statement on the player and the pilot.

"We offer our most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano. He and David will forever remain in our thoughts," the club said.

The Premier League side ended their statement with '#CityAsOne,' but they are not alone in this mourning.
