​French club FC Nantes created and posted one of the most emotionally gripping tribute videos for Emiliano Sala.


Police confirmed on Friday that the body found in an aeroplane in the English Channel earlier this week was that of Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala, after the light aircraft carrying him disappeared nearly two weeks ago.


While there have been thousands of dedications and tributes made for Sala, this one made by Nantes is very, very emotional.


Have a look....




The 28-year-old was enjoying one of his best ever goalscoring seasons in 2018/19 and had hit 12 goals in 19 games for Nantes in Ligue 1 before completing a £15m transfer to Cardiff City. It has been reported that Sala turned down an offer from the Chinese Super League in order to join the Premier League side.


All Ligue 1 and 2 games will hold a minute's applause before kickoff this weekend in tribute to Sala.


"Tonight and during the whole weekend, we will all be united in paying a last tribute to Emiliano before the matches kick off," Ligue de Football Professionnel President Nathalie Boy de la Tour said in a statement.
