Emiliano Sala was one of the two people on board the Piper Malibu plane travelling between Nantes and Cardiff on Monday night
The search for Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala resumed on Wednesday 36 hours after the light aircraft he was flying on disappeared over the English Channel.
Emiliano was on board a light aircraft which went missing en route from Nantes to the Welsh capital on Monday evening.
The other person on board has now been named as British pilot Dave Ibbotson, a 60 year old father of three .
The Police said that there has been “no trace” of the aircraft, and the chances of survival are “unfortunately slim”.
The Argentinean forward Sala signed for the club in a £15m deal on Saturday and had been back to France to say goodbye to his old teammates on Monday evening.
New report emerged on Monday night, including a WhatApp voice message Sala sent to friends talking about his fears in the moments before the crash.
