Two Southampton fans set to be banned after mocking Emiliano Sala death

It read: "Nantes had the enormous sadness on Thursday to learn that the body found was that of Emiliano Sala".

The body recovered from the wreckage of a crashed plane has been identified as that of the missing Argentine footballer and Cardiff City player, Emiliano Sala, UK police has confirmed.

Cardiff supporters passed around banners in tribute to the footballer who was on his way to join club when his plane went off the radar over the English Channel on 21 January. "Many of us kept a glimmer of hope for you, Emiliano", football icon Maradona said on Instagram, following the identification of the body.

The two clubs, Cardiff City and Nantes are preparing to fight a legal suit over Sala's £15m transfer fee.

The club further maintained they will not condone such indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters.

The Premier League player's former French club, Nantes, said it was withdrawing the jersey with Sala's number 9 on it and all Ligue 1 and 2 matches in France this weekend will be preceded by a minute of applause for him.

However, it has since transpired that the men have also had their details taken by Hampshire police after being detained and now face a three-year banning order from attending Southampton matches.

"The club will be taking an extremely firm stance against anyone involved and intends to ban those supporters identified", the statement added.

But David Ibbotson, from Crowle, who was lying Sala to the United Kingdom to join Cardiff City, has not been found.

Their behaviour emerged in a video published to social media yesterday after Southampton lost 2-1 to Cardiff City at the St Mary's Stadium.

"We could easily have folded, but we were determined", Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said following the win.
