Minute's silence to be observed at every UEFA competition match this week in memory of Emiliano Sala

Baku, February 12, AZERTAC

UEFA has confirmed that a minute's silence will be observed at all UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches this week in memory of Emiliano Sala, according to the official website of UEFA.

Having concluded a transfer from Nantes to Cardiff City, the 28-year-old forward was killed when the plane he was travelling in along with pilot David Ibbotson crashed into the English Channel on 21 January. Sala's body was formally identified on 7 February. Ibbotson has yet to be found.

Clubs competing in UEFA competition matches this week will also have the option of wearing black armbands in memory of Sala, who was born in Argentina, but spent the bulk of his professional career in France.
