On 19 January 2019, Cardiff celebrated as they had not celebrated for a very long time, after having managed to sign Nantes striker Emiliano Sala for € 17 million - the highest transfer fee in the club's history.

That season, the team played in the Premier League and desperately needed reinforcement in the offensive section.

Sala, who scored 42 goals in 120 games for the Nantes uniform in France, was the solution, and Cardiff counted the minutes until he made his first appearance for the team.

But two days later, as he was making his way from Nantes to Cardiff, Sala's plane crashed and he died at just 28 years old.



Today (Thursday) exactly two years after the plane crash, his family issued a statement demanding that they continue investigating to find the person responsible for Emiliano's death: "It is inconceivable that today, two years after the disaster, we still have no idea what exactly happened there and how Emiliano died. We demand to know the truth and do not want to reach the third year of his death without answers. "



Meanwhile, Cardiff has announced that it will open a special fund to raise funds for the benefit of the family: "We hope the fund will be launched in the coming weeks," the club said.
