An inquest into the tragic death of Argentinian football player, Emiliano Sala has revealed he died from “head and trunk” injuries when the plane he was travelling on crashed in the English Channel.

The 28-year-old striker was travelling from Nantes, France to Wales to join his new teammates at Cardiff City, after signing a $29 million deal with his new club.

Sala’s body was recovered from the seabed wreckage last week after he disappeared on January 22 with his pilot David Ibbotson on board.

Sala had to be identified by his fingerprints after his body pulled out from the wreckage of the Piper Malibu aircraft.

“Mr Sala was identified on the 7th February by means of fingerprint evidence analyses by fingerprint expert Christopher Bradbury,” Ian Parry, a senior coroner’s officer for Dorset, said.

“A post mortem was carried out after the body was taken to Holly Tree Lodge mortuary.

“Home office pathologist Mr Purdue gave the cause of death as head and trunk injuries.”

The inquest was adjourned until November 6 for a pre-inquest review.

An interim report is set to be released within a fortnight, although a full report by the Air Accident Investigation Branch will not be published for at least six months, The Sun reported.
