Serie A pays Sala tributes

Serie A clubs and players have paid tribute to former Nantes and Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala, who was pronounced dead on Thursday.

Sala had been missing since the light aircraft he was travelling on went off radar on the evening of January 21, before his body was confirmed to have been removed from the wreckage.

Inter, Napoli, Lazio and Milan were among the clubs who tweeted messages of condolences, as well as Fiorentina, who tragically lost captain Davide Astori only last year.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly wrote: “A thought to his family and loved ones. Rest in peace!”

“Rest in peace, Emiliano. All my strength to your family and friends at such a difficult time,” added Fiorentina striker Giovanni Simeone.
