EMILIANO SALA’s BODY ARRIVES IN BUENOS AIRES BEFORE FUNERAL
The body of Emiliano Sala has arrived in Buenos Aires ahead of Saturday’s funeral at his home town of Progreso.
Sala’s body is being taken to Santa Fe in north east Argentina and will then be transported from there to Progreso for the funeral.
The 28-year-old striker died in January just two days after completing a Cardiff club-record £15m move from Nantes.
The single-engine private plane that was carrying Sala and pilot David Ibbotson crashed in the English Channel near Alderney on January 21.
Sala’s body was recovered from the wreckage on February 7, but Ibbotson remains missing, with funds being raised to continue the search for the 59-year-old from Lincolnshire.
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock and chief executive Ken Choo will both attend the funeral in Progreso.
