French outfit Nantes paid tribute to their former striker Emiliano Sala on Sunday in the game against Bordeaux who died in a plane crash enroute to Cardiff City his new club in 2018.
Nantes wore a specially made shirt for the occasion which is inspired by the Argentina colours and there were giant tifos around the ground and a minute’s applause before kick-off.
The anniversary is five days late as this was their first home game after the anniversary of the tragedy.
His body was recovered from the plane wreckage in early February 2019, but 59-year-old pilot David Ibbotson, from Crowle, North Lincolnshire, has still not been found.
Un tifo en la mémoire des nôtres. Pour toujours dans les coeurs des Nantais.
