Emiliano Sala: Details of footballer's death emerge

Mr Sala's pilot, David Ibbotson, has not been found.

During Monday's hearing of the post-mortem examination, Dorset Coroner's Court concluded Sala's passing was caused by injuries to his head and trunk.

Tan has vowed to help the family where possible, along with assisting Air Accident Investigation Branch in their attempt to determine the cause of the incident.

Brendan Allen, the acting senior coroner for Dorset, adjourned proceedings into Sala's death until November 6 for a pre-inquest review.

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

After the initial search for the player was called off, his family set up a private fund which led to the plane wreckage being found and his body recovered.

Warnock was due to take the players away for some warm-weather training as the club are not in action again until they face Watford on February 22.

"After what's happened, I'd rather cuddle my kids and see my missus because it's been a long two weeks", he said.

Gary Lineker is reported to have donated £1,000 ($1,300) to the family of pilot David Ibbotson, who has yet to be located following the plane crash that killed Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala.

"I've never known anything like this in my life and I've seen most things".

Manager Neil Warnock wasn't able to keep his tears back last Saturday when they won for the first time since his disappearance with a 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

Cardiff's win, sealed with an injury time victor by Kenneth Zohore, took them out of the relegation zone and into 15th before Burnley's win over Brighton dropped them into 16th.

TWO Southampton Football Club supporters were detained by Hampshire police after appearing to make "aeroplane gestures" to Cardiff fans - mocking the death of Emiliano Sala.

"We can now begin to mourn our son and our brother", the Argentine Cardiff City striker's family said in a statement.
