Emiliano Sala’s father has described his anguish and disbelief after wreckage of the plane carrying the missing Premier League footballer was found nearly two weeks after it disappeared.
The 28-year-old Argentinian footballer’s father, Horacio Sala, was speaking after a search boat located the wreckage on the seabed of the English Channel on Sunday morning.
The Piper Malibu aircraft, which was heading from the French city of Nantes to Cardiff, vanished from radars close to the Channel Islands on 21 January.
Both Sala and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, are missing presumed dead.
Sala had just completed a £15m transfer to Cardiff City from French club Nantes.
Two vessels were looking for traces of the missing plane after a successful online appeal to fund the effort.
