In the case of the killed in a plane crash Argentine football professional Emiliano Sala is the English second division club Cardiff City against the decision of the World Federation Fifa in the stripping controversy in appeal and calls the International Court of Justice Cas. The club said in a statement.

"We will contact the Cas to make a decision that will take into account all relevant contract information and clarify the full legal situation between our two clubs," the Welsh letter said. "There is still strong evidence that the transfer agreement has never been concluded in accordance with several contractual requirements requested by Nantes, thereby annulling it," the authorities wrote.

Fifa had decided on Monday that Cardiff must first pay the French first division club FC Nantes six million euros. Previously, the Welsh club had refused to pay the originally agreed transfer fee of 17 million euros. Nantes filed a complaint in February.

The 28-year-old Sala had died on January 21 when a private plane crashed over the English Channel. He was on his way to his new club in Cardiff, who had signed the Argentine two days earlier from Nantes.
