Former Argentina player, Diego Maradona has paid tribute to Cardiff City new signing, Emiliano Sala, who went missing on the plane on Monday night.
The report revealed that Sala was travelling from Nantes to the Welsh capital to join his team-mates after his £15million transfer deal.
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…”
