Tributes were left outside Caen’s stadium in memory of Emiliano Sala

Caen and Nantes paid tribute to their former striker Emiliano Sala during their Ligue 1 match on Wednesday.

Sala’s body was recovered from the wreckage of a crashed plane last week.

The players warmed up in t-shirts with the slogan ‘Play for Sala’, while each Caen player’s shirt had the striker’s name on the back.

A minute’s applause was held 14th minute, Sala’s squad number at Caen. There was also a pre-match video tribute and commemorative programme.

The striker spent the second half of the 2014-15 season on loan at Caen, scoring five goals in 13 appearances, before returning to parent club Nantes.

Sala was flying from Nantes to join new side Cardiff City when his plane went missing over the English Channel on 21 January.

The body of the plane’s pilot, David Ibbotson, has yet to be found and a fundraising appeal to fund an underwater search has seen more than £150,000 donated so far.
