Body found in English Channel ID'd as Emiliano Sala

Flowers and tributes are placed near a giant

It's official, the body of Cardiff City player Emiliano Sala has been recovered from the wreckage of a crashed plane, according to Dorset Police.

Sala, 28, was travelling to Cardiff in a plane piloted by David Ibbotson, which went missing over the English Channel on January 21. Our thoughts remain with them all'.

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.

Police confirmed on Thursday that the body recovered from a plane in the English Channel was that of Argentine soccer player Emiliano Sala.

However, the plane got missing and after several weeks of search, the wreckage of the aircraft was found and a body was pulled out from it on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old Sala was flying to south Wales to start a new chapter in his career when his plane disappeared from radar on January 21 above the English Channel.

Sala's sister Romina, Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero also sent their condolences.

He had yet to play for the club.

Australia vs Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka's lack of quality, however, will be a factor in how selectors assess that form with competition for places now strong. He was later cleared of injury and discharged on Saturday night, though it's unclear if he will be fit to play out the game.

The Piper Malibu plane, registration N264DB, was found 67 metres underwater 21 miles off the coast of Guernsey and weather conditions meant that investigations were delayed.

The body was then identified as the former Nantes player's and African stars have taken to the social media to pay their tribute to the departed footballer.

Forestieri was one of the many footballers who called for police to keep up their search for Sala and to not lose faith.

The whereabouts of Mr Ibbotson remain unclear at this time.

Cardiff City, the club he was moving to the United Kingdom to play for, said: "We offer our most heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family of Emiliano".

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

Nantes threatened Cardiff with legal action after the first instalment was withheld by the Premier League club.

However, the AAIB said video footage captured by the ROV would provide "valuable evidence" for its safety investigation.
