UEFA confirm European respects for fallen Cardiff striker Sala


UEFA have confirmed there will be a minute’s silence before all European fixtures this week to pay respects for fallen Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala.

The Argentine died after the plane he was travelling in from Nantes to Cardiff lost contact with air traffic control over the English Channel on January 21. Pilot David Ibbotson is still missing.

“On behalf of everyone at UEFA, I would like to express my sincerest condolences to the family and loved ones of Emiliano Sala for their loss,” said UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin.

“I am deeply saddened that his life was so cruelly taken away at such a young age and I urge supporters across the continent to pay their respects to his memory over the coming days.”

Clubs competing in UEFA competitions will have the option to wear black armbands this weekend in memory of Sala.
