Cardiff boss set to pay one final tribute to Sala

Cardiff boss set to pay one final tribute to Emiliano Sala

February 14, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Coach Neil Warnock was deeply hurt by Sala's death, with some reports claiming that he had considered leaving the Bluebirds.

Emiliano Sala's shocking death generated a massive amount of reactions around the world, touching the hearts of football fans that were aware of his antics or the ones of those who had never heard his name. This time, the coach that came close to working with the ill-fated Argentine striker wants to honor the player with one final show of respect.

Cardiff City's coach Neil Warnock has revealed that he will travel to Progreso, Argentina, to attend Sala's funeral. Warnock will be joined by the team's executive advisor, Ken Choo to represent the club in this tough endeavor.

Warnock was deeply shocked by Sala's death. The boss admitted that he considered retirement at some point due to the nature of this news. He has already committed his future to the club as a tribute to the fotballer.

The player's body will return to Argentina this Friday after the proper arrangements were made. The funeral is expected to take place during the weekend, but details about the ceremony have been scarce due to the large interest attracted by the incident in which Sala and pilot David Ibbotson perished.

Sala was expected to join Cardiff City on January 22, but the plane flying him to the Welsh city disappeared, leaving no trace of its whereabouts for almost a week. A private search was able to track the plane in the bottom of the ocean, where Sala's body was eventually found on February 7.
