Emiliano Sala remembered by footballers after body found in plane wreckage

Argentine striker Emiliano Sala had just completed a dream move to EPL side Cardiff City from FC Nantes

Sala's body was recovered from the English Channel and formally identified on Thursday evening, nearly three weeks after his plane crashed en route to Cardiff - whom he joined for a club-record €17 million.

The French club were responding to the news that the 28-year-old's body had been found in the wreckage of the plane that crashed into the English Channel as he flew to Cardiff City following his £15million transfer.

It said his family has been noted with this update and is provided with help from specially-trained family liaison officers. "He and David will forever remain in our thoughts".

Dorset Police have now confirmed that a coroner has officially identified the body as the former Nantes striker.

After being sold by French soccer club FC Nantes to the Premier League's Cardiff City F.C., the Argentine athlete was preparing to move to Wales to start this new stage of his career.

Nearly three weeks after the plane plunged into the sea off Guernsey in the Channel Islands, Sala's family said they could finally mourn him after his body was recovered from the seabed and formally identified.

Before the AAIB stepped in, oceanographer, marine scientist and well-known shipwreck hunter David Mearns launched a survey vessel and confirmed the wreckage had been found after "a couple of hours" of searching the seabed of the English Channel.

"We have offered to them to arrange to take Emiliano back to rest with his family in Argentina".

Donald Trump credits himself with averting major war with North Korea
Both are fewer than 2,000 miles from North Korea's capital of Pyongyang-an even shorter hop from North Korea than Singapore. Due to its recent role as a summit host city, experts suggest Da Nang is a more likely location for the meeting than Hanoi.

He had yet to play for the club.

The hope of his family and many football lovers the world over was that Sala would have somehow miraculously survived the plane disaster.

The wreckage of a single-engine Piper Malibu N264DB was discovered on Sunday evening, having disappeared on Jan 21 as Sala flew from Nantes in France to Cardiff.

"We can now begin to mourn our son and our brother", the Argentine Cardiff City striker's family said in a statement.

The plane had been en route to Cardiff from Nantes, France when it vanished from radars near the Channel Islands.

The organisation say video recordings, collected from their underwater robot, will provide "valuable evidence" for their investigation.

Many other clubs paid tribute to Sala today.
