Kylian Mbappe donates £27,000 to pilot David Ibbotson search bid

David Ibbotson 59 died alongside the Cardiff City striker

The Argentine star was confirmed dead after a body pulled from his ill-fated plane was identified as his on Friday, February 8, by investigators.

The gestures were in stark contrast to the tributes to Sala, whose body was recovered Thursday from the English Channel, that took place at soccer matches in England and France.

While Sala's body was recovered from the plane wreckage, the pilot's has not yet been found.

'Air traffic control lost contact during the flight and an extensive search operation was carried out.

The wife and daughter of pilot David Ibbotson, who was flying the plane carrying Emiliano Sala, have said they will never give up hope of finding him.

The Argentinian footballer signed for Cardiff City in the January transfer window.

The investigation into the crash that claimed the life of Emiliano Sala is likely to take a year to conclude and cannot be used by Cardiff City as a reason to delay paying Nantes for the player, Sportsmail can reveal.

Southampton confirmed both supporters had been spoken to by Hampshire Police and meant to take "an extremely firm stance" over the incident.

Police are liaising with the club after three Saints fans were ejected during Cardiff's visit to St Mary's on Saturday after making aeroplane gestures towards Bluebirds supporters.

During the minute's silence in memory of Emiliano Sala prior to Southampton's clash with Cardiff City, two home fans mocked the death of the player and have since been detained by police. Afterwards, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock dedicated the win to Sala: "We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I'm really proud the lads have done him justice".

Defender Sol Bamba scored a stoppage-time victor as Cardiff beat Southampton 2-1 at St Mary's on Saturday in their first match since Sala's death was confirmed.

Police later identified the supporters in question and detained them, with the club announcing that they will ban them for the disgusting behaviour. Obviously we do know he's gone but we want him back.
