Emiliano Sala’s sister has reportedly attempted to take her own life and is in critical condition in hospital. The devastating news comes almost two-and-a-half years after the footballer tragically died in a plane crash off the coast of England, days after signing a deal with Premier League side Cardiff City.
Sala’s sister Romina was the family spokesperson following her brother’s death but she is now in critical condition, according to Argentine media.
Sala went missing on January 19 two years ago when his plane crashed over the Channel Islands after agreeing to move to Wales from Rennes.
Romina has been a regular social media user and on what would have been Emiliano’s 31st birthday on October 31, 2019, she wrote: “There are no words that can describe the pain.
“Happy birthday brother! Where ever you are, give us the strength to go on.
“I wish everything were different… I promise you we will not stop until the end. Kisses to heaven.”
