Cardiff Make Fresh Attempt To Wheedle Out Of Paying Sala Transfer Fee

Cardiff City have called for an investigation into FC Nantes part in the tragic death of Emiliano Sala. Cardiff have refused to pay the transfer fee for the the striker, despite FIFA ruling that they should pay the first instalment. Instead the Bluebirds have taken their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport as they claim that Sala was not officially their player when the airplane carrying him back to Cardiff from a visit to Nantes crashed. Cardiff stated: "CCFC has been clear throughout the past 12 months that a full investigation of the facts leading up to the tragedy is required. Not only to fully understand what led to the downing of the Piper PA-46 Malibu plane, but to answer the wider questions that have been highlighted in this case, specifically related to the use of illegal flights in the football industry and the role of intermediaries in player transfers. As a result of our investigation we believe there is sufficient evidence of wrongdoing that necessitates investigation by the French authorities of those responsible for the arrangement of the transfer on behalf of FC Nantes and for arranging the doomed flight. We have therefore passed over information to the Parquet de Nantes to assist their efforts. We remain committed to establishing the full facts and adhering to any final decision on our financial liability in the transfer." FC Nantes have hit out at Cardiff, saying it was "absolutely stunned by Cardiff's umpteenth attempt to exploit this tragedy. FC Nantes has always shown a very quiet attitude since the beginning of these events. FC Nantes has always acted in good faith, while Cardiff has made repeated attempts to destabilise public opinion with falsehoods. What clearly appears to be a media offensive is so inappropriate as we just paid our respect to Emiliano Sala in a few days and one day before the submission of Cardiff's memory deposit before the Court of Arbitration for Sport".


Equaliser's Home Attacked

It has been reported that the home of Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has been attacked by a group chanting that Woodward was "going to die". A video was posted on social media of a group gathered singing offensive songs aimed at Woodward as an individual threw a red flare over his gate. A club statement read: "Fans expressing opinion is one thing, criminal damage and intent to endanger life is another. There is simply no excuse for this. We know that the football world will unite behind us as we work with police to identify the perpetrators of this unwarranted attack."
