Argentina-born Emiliano Sala perished in January after a small private plane taking the footballer from Paris to Wales crashed while attempting to cross the English Channel. The body of the Argentinian striker was recovered two weeks following the crash, while the remains of the pilot, David Ibbotson, have never been found.
