It’s been 2 weeks since Emiliano Sala’s plane, former FC Nantes football player, crashed into the sea. Despite almost zero chances of survival, his relatives do not want to give up hope. His dog either …
On January 21, the football world was shaken by the terrible news of the crash of the plane carrying Emiliano Sala . The 28-year-old Italian-Argentinian footballer had just finalized his transfer from FC Nantes to the club in Cardiff , Wales. He was on board a single-engine propeller that was to take him there when the aircraft crashed in the English Channel .
The wreckage was not located until 13 days later, on February 3. If a body could be seen there thanks to an unmanned underwater vehicle, it has not yet been possible to determine its identity to date; it could be his or that of the pilot , David Andrew Ibbotson .
It was in 2015 that this Labrador-Retriever bitch entered the life of Emiliano Sala ; he had adopted her at the Loire-Atlantique SPA. Since then, the striker passed notably by the Girondins de Bordeaux and the Stade Malherbe de Caen regularly published photos of her on Instagram .
