Nantes honors Emiliano Sala
On January 21, 2019, the world of football was moved by one of the saddest news in its history. Emiliano Sala suffered a tragic accident on the English Channel, traveling to his new club (Cardiff) after greeting his former teammates in Nantes.
A year after the tragic accident, Nantes decided to honor Emiliano Sala by throwing a special shirt with the white and blue colors of Argentina. The same will be used in the match against Bordeaux and all that is collected with the sale of the jackets will be destined to the childhood clubs of the Argentine forward.
The presentation of this shirt was made through the social networks of Nantes by the hand of soccer players of all nationalities, partners or not (as in the case of Kylian Mbappé) of Emiliano Sala. With personalized messages, players remember the Argentine through warm phrases.
