FC Nantes To Retire Shirt Number 9 In Honour Of Emiliano Sala.



FC Nantes has revealed that the club has concluded on a decision to retire shirt no. 9 in honour of Emiliano Sala which will serve as a mark of respect to the Argentine striker after his body was recovered from a plane wreckage he was travelling on that crashed on its way to Cardiff.

The Argentine striker spent four years with the club according to the books in their record.

The statement released by Nantes reads:
“FC Nantes had the immense sadness on Thursday to learn that the body recovered was that of Emiliano Sala. This sad news puts an end to interminable and unbearable waiting. Emiliano will forever be one of the legends who has written the great history of FC Nantes.

“There are difficult mornings, nightmarish awakenings, where unhappily reality hit us. Emi is gone…

“Emiliano Sala arrived on the backs of the Edre in July 2015 and knew how to win the hearts of the Nantes supporters. With his work, his desire and his kindness without limits, he finished as the club’s top scorer in his three seasons.

“The homages paid to him both nationally and internationally match the player and personal that he was. Today, we have lost a friend, a talented player and an exemplary team-mate.

“We can’t forget in this drama the pilot and his family and have confidence that the authorities will continue their search.

The President of FC Nantes also said: ‘I don’t have the words. It’s a tragedy, I’m crushed. Emiliano left his mark. That’s why, like many fans, I wish to honour him by retiring the No.9.’
