A heart attack has claimed the life of 58-year-old Horacio, the father of late footballer Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash on January 21, 2019.
Julio Mueller, the mayor of Progreso, the Argentine village where Horacio lived, disclosed this on Friday.
He said, “Horacio’s wife called me at five o’clock in the morning (0800 GMT). The doctors were already there, he never managed to get over the death of Emi.”
Emiliano Sala died when a small plane conveying him from France to Wales crashed on the English Channel.
The 28-year-old had signed a club-record £15million deal with Welsh club, Cardiff City from French side, Nantes.
