Footballer's Father Dies Three Months After Son Killed

The father of Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala, who was killed in a plane crash three months ago, has passed away on Friday.

Horacio Sala, aged 58, died from a heart attack, the mayor of his hometown Progreso said.

"2019 has been very hard on us," Julio Muller told local media. "I think Horacio couldn't get over what happened to Emi.”

"Every news he heard about the investigation was really tough for him,” he added.

Emiliano Sala's plane crashed on 21 January en route to Cardiff after leaving from France.
