Cardiff City

Cardiff boss to speak today

28th January 2019, 07:52 by Nick Harris

Neil Warnock will speak to the media on Monday as the family of missing striker Emiliano Sala continue their own search for answers.

Staff and supporters of the Premier League club will wear yellow daffodils at Arsenal when the team returns to action on Tuesday night in respect of Sala, whose family saw a target of 300,000 euros (259,000) reached on Sunday to help fund a new search around the Channel Islands.

An official search and rescue operation for the Piper PA-46 Malibu carrying the Argentinian striker and pilot David Ibbotson was called off last Thursday.

Pleas for the search to resume were made by the 28-year-old player's family, Argentinian football stars Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and Sergio Aguero and the country's president Mauricio Macri.

Donations from footballers including Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan and France World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe helped a GoFundMe page raising money for the search to reach the revised target.

A statement from the family issued on Sunday afternoon via the GoFundMe page thanked everyone for the "exceptional generosity in a drama that goes far beyond football."

The fund is set to remain open, with Sala's sister and mother, Mercedes, having arrived in Guernsey on Sunday.
