Argentine Sala

I didn’t even know him, but there’s something in the air about this tragedy that resonates with all football fans – and the public at large.
“Emiliano Raúl Sala Taffarel is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward and is contracted to Premier League side Cardiff City. ” So is the introduction on Wikipedia. However, the lost soul increasingly looking as deceased in a plane crash might have been contracted – but is destined never to play for the ‘blue birds’.
I look with strain at the distraught Father – then Sister – on news reporting. He seemed to be an honest, hard working lad who was adored by fans and team mates alike. Any loss of life is sad. Having my own Son, makes me contemplate with horror how my life would be ruined if ever he were never to return.
Probably we will not hear the last of this.  Allegations and rumours abound – the pilots proficiency, the air worthiness of the plane, weather conditions, mode of transport, insurance of player etc. Somebody may be culpable to add some explanation and recourse, but this is not the time for admonishment. Emiliano Sala RIP.
