“OH DEATH WHERE IS THY STING? OH DEATH WHERE IS THY VICTORY?”
It was difficult to digest the news of his disappearance
He had just opened a new chapter in his career, yet he couldn’t fulfill a life-long dream.
When the news broke that faithful Monday night, we hoped against hope that both men aboard were safe.
Then it was confirmed that the plane had crashed and a body found aboard the crashed plane.
Fans, family and friends alike were distraught when it was confirmed that the body found was that of Emiliano Sala.
The dream was over
A great man and player had been lost
Football lost a gem
Tributes poured in and it was heart-wrenching reading the lovely tributes.
FC Nantes, honoured Sala by retiring his number 9 shirt, slashing ticket prices for the home game against Nimes to just 9 Euros, wearing black jerseys with the name Sala embossed on the back
As a fan, it was difficult to hold back tears in the ninth minute when play was halted and the whole stadium stood and clapped for their Hero
12 goals this season but no more
Sala was brilliant and had passion
Family, friends, teammates, coaches and fans will miss his lovely smile
Rest In Peace Hermano! Adieu!
We’ll miss you Tito!
And my prayer continues; ” So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
