Argentina legend, Diego Maradona has paid tribute to Cardiff City star, Emiliano Sala, after the striker went missing on a plane over the English Channel on Monday night.
Sala was travelling from Nantes to the Welsh capital to join his team-mates following his £15million move.
Sala’s plane was lost from the radar as it crossed the English Channel and the 28-year-old is now feared dead.
Maradona, a fellow countryman with Sala, said he was “devastated” to hear the news of the former Nantes’ star missing.
“I cannot even imagine [what] the family of Emiliano Sala is going through,” Maradona posted on Instagram.
“My wish, and that of everyone, is that you have landed at a different airport…”
Meanwhile, the search for Sala resumed on Wednesday morning after it was postponed overnight.
