Emiliano Sala’s cute dog pictured a year on from Cardiff City player’s death

Emiliano Sala’s black labrador has been pictured a year on from the footballer’s tragic death as he travelled to Cardiff City.

The Argentine’s sister Romina Sala posted a heartbreaking photo of Sala’s dog waiting by the door for the player to return after he was killed in a plane crash in the English Channel.

Now a year on Romina has uploaded more photos of the loyal dog back in Argentina where she is looking happy in her new life.

Romina captioned the snaps: “Black beauty.”

Sala was flying back to Cardiff from Nantes on January 21 with pilot Dave Ibbotson when the plane went off the radar about 7pm.

After an extensive search, the £15million signing by Cardiff, was recovered from the plane wreckage on the seabed and his funeral was held in his hometown in Argentina.

Mr Ibbotson’s body was never found but he is presumed dead.

Romina’s latest snaps of Nala has received over 3,000 likes and many people glad to see Sala’s dog being looked after well.

One wrote "Nala” along with a heart emoji and there were lots of other people posting heart messages.

Another said: “It's great to see Nala again.”

Last week she also uploaded a photo of Sala where she wrote a long tribute about the player and how his death has made her see life differently.

She concluded: “Your memory has awoken the seed of my happiness.”

Sala’s former club Nantes has confirmed they will honour their ex-striker before their clash with Bordeaux next Sunday.

Nantes have already retired his number 9 shirt in his memory.

Cardiff City have encouraged fans to lay tributes outside the stadium on Tuesday and club representatives will attend a service at St David’s Cathedral, in the city.

A year on from Sala’s death the dispute over his transfer fee continues with FIFA ruling last December that Cardiff should pay Nantes £5.3million.

This is now being appealed by Cardiff who say he wasn’t yet their player when the accident happened.
