Arsenal have paid a classy tribute to missing Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala for tonight’s Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.
The Argentine was about to join Cardiff from Ligue 1 side Nantes before his plane went missing eight days ago.
The Gunners have made a special effort to think of Sala and all those involved with Cardiff and Nantes at the moment with the nice touch of including him on their opponents’ team sheet this evening.
It will be hard to fully focus on football tonight for anyone at Cardiff after the truly horrific events of the last week.
