Organisers of Sala search fund make plea to keep donations coming for pilot

Organisers of Sala search fund make plea to keep donations coming for pilot

It read: "Nantes had the huge sadness on Thursday to learn that the body found was that of Emiliano Sala".

The family of the missing pilot of the plane carrying the footballer Emiliano Sala have set up a fundraising page for donations to restart a search for him.

The body of pilot David Ibbotson has not been found.

But, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said its search efforts had ended and efforts to bring the wreckage to the surface were aborted due to poor weather. Emiliano will forever be one of the legends who has written the great history of FC Nantes.

"There are hard mornings, nightmarish awakenings, where unhappily reality hits us".

Following Thursday's announcement, Nantes president Waldemar Kita confirmed the striker's number nine shirt would be retired as a mark of respect.

"With his work, his desire and his kindness without limits, he finished as the club's top scorer in his three seasons".

"That's why, like many fans, I wish to honour him by retiring the number nine".

Emiliano Sala's family have passed their thoughts to Ibbotson's family, adding that they hope authorities "will do their best to find him". We will never forget you Emi.
