Top players in Football have been paying their tribute to Cardiff City star, Emiliano Sala after his body was found in the wreckage of a plane which crashed.
Recall that Naija News had reported that a body which was recovered from the wreckage of a plane in the English Channel was identified as Sala, according to the Dorset police on Thursday.
The plane, which was carrying the 28-year-old Argentine footballer and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, went missing from radar near Guernsey two weeks ago.
Cardiff released a statement offering their “most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano.”
The likes of Arsenal playmaker, Mesut Ozil, Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney and others have paid their tribute to the Striker.
Diego Maradona wrote on his Instagram: “I am very sorry for this sad news. Many of us kept a light of hope for you, Emiliano. I send a big hug to your family and friends, and I thank the Argentines for the respect of colleagues and fans from all over the world. See you, Emiliano! #RecenPorSala #PrayForSala.”
