Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock on Friday said that confirmation of record signing Emiliano Sala's death in a plane crash after weeks of searching brings closure to the matter, allowing everyone to move on in their lives.

Warnock recalled his meeting with Sala. The 28-year-old Argentinian striker had been flying from Nantes in western France to Wales on Jan 21 after signing for the Premier League side for 15 million pounds when the single-engined Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared over the sea.
