Sala's Father: I Don't Think We'll Find Our Son Alive

The father of Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala, who was in a plane went missing two weeks ago, has commented on the tragedy after recent developments revealed the plane had been found and a body was discovered in the wreckage.
The missing plane that was transporting Cardiff's club-record signing was reportedly found on Sunday, and Sala's father subsequently spoke about his thoughts after hearing the latest news.
Despite investigators doing their best to salvage any wreckage from the plane, the Argentine's father has conceded that "it would be a miracle" if his son was found alive after the plane went missing on 21 January.
"I am not hopeful that they will find Emiliano alive," Horacio Sala was quoted as saying by Marca.
"It would be a miracle. I have to say that we have given up hope of them being found alive.
"We hope that both bodies are inside the plane. There is nothing else left to say.
"Hopefully both bodies will be there so that there can be some closure to this tragedy." 
Sala completed a club-record move worth €17 million (R261 million) to Cardiff City on 19 January, but went to back to Nantes to say farewell to his former teammates. Unfortunately, though the 28-year-old never returned to Cardiff, with chances now being very slim that he will be found alive.
