Sala’s Body To Be Flown Home.


Sala’s Body To Be Flown Home.

The body of Cardiff Striker, Emiliano Sala is to be flown back to his hometown in Argentina after Sources reveal a vigil is planned for him at home.

The 28 year old who never had a chance to play in England after tweeting “new sala in town” was travelling to Cardiff in a plane piloted by David Ibbotson, which went missing over the English Channel on the 21st of January.

Sala was flying from French club Nantes when the plane went missing until his body was found last week in a devastating manner.

Julio Muller, mayor of Sala’s hometown of Progreso, said the footballer’s family had arrived for the service.

Mr Muller said Sala’s body would arrive in the late afternoon on Friday and be taken to the gymnasium next to his youth club’s headquarters, where a vigil was scheduled.

His boyhood club San Martin de Progreso posted an emotional tribute on Facebook, saying: “We are waiting for the first day you left but this time to stay with us forever.

“You went and you are an example for everyone. Eternally in our hearts.
