Emiliano Sala to be buried today in Argentina
Emiliano Sala will be buried today in his hometown of Progreso, Argentina. The body of the late footballer arrived in Argentina yesterday and will be further transported to his hometown.
The wake keep and funeral service will be held today. The Argentine’s plane disappeared when he was flying to his new club, Cardiff, after bidding his teammates at the French Ligue 1 club, Nantes goodbye.
Following a rigorous search, the plane’s wreckage was found on February 3, at the bottom of the English Channel, 63 meters below sea level and his lifeless body was recovered three days after.
Emiliano Sala died in January just a few days after completing a Cardiff-club record move from Nantes for £15m. The pilot, David Ibbotson has not been found yet, but search intensifies.
A contingent from his former club, Nantes will be attending his funeral service as well as Cardiff City manager, Neil Warnock, and Ken Choo, Cardiff’s Chief Executive Officer.
