Southampton and police to probe incident of fans mocking Emiliano Sala

David Ibbotson 59 died alongside the Cardiff City striker

TRAGIC David Ibbotson 59 died alongside the Cardiff City striker when the plane went down

Knowing that now, hopefully the pilot will be found and his family can mourn.

"We would like to thank you for all your signs of affection and support in what is the most painful time of our lives".

As well as the black jerseys, all unsold tickets for the game will be available for purchase at just €9 - a reference to Sala's shirt number during his time at the club. All matches in France's top two divisions this weekend will be preceded by a minute of applause for him.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has donated £27,000 (Sh3.5million) to privately fund the search for David Ibbotson who piloted the plane carrying Emiliano Sala that crashed into the English Channel. The aircraft's pilot David Ibbotson, however, is still missing and calls for continuing the operation to find him have been made from Emiliano Sala's family.

The Geo Ocean III, which was involved in finding the wreckage, took the body back to the nearest port of Portland in Dorset, where the body was formally identified.

Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris has bid his departed Nantes attacking partner Emiliano Sala.

Sala's family raised £300,000 through a similar crowdfunding site which they used to hire a private company and Air Accidents Investigation Branch using the money.

Sala's family have also called for the search for Mr Ibbotson to continue.

"I am very sorry about this sad news".

"He has left an eternal mark on this club, on top of it all (the death) it was such a shock, him disappearing and the hope gradually dwindling", he said.

Manchester City and current Argentina striker Sergio Aguero also expressed his condolences.

After what has arguably been the most gruelling period in the club's history, Cardiff City finally have a chance to stop, rest and reflect with the team not in action during next weekend's FA Cup fifth-round programme.
