There are many beautiful things about the great Emiliano Sala and the Argentine forward was eagerly relishing the prospect of unleashing his red hot form on the premier leagues before the unfortunate incident that led to his demise.
On the 22 of January, 2018, the plane he boarded en route between Nantes and Cardiff got missing and after days and weeks of fruitless search, his body was recovered from the wreckage from the aircraft on the 7th of February 2019.
Here are five things that the EPL will miss about Emiliano Sala.
- An amazing goal scorer. The goal scoring exploits of Sala is no doubt one thing the premier league will not have the opportunity to witness. He has already scored twelve goals in the French league this season and was on course to score more before his transfer.
2.A Turn Around for Cardiff City. It will have been a beautiful thing to watch Cardif City experience a turnaround that will lift them out of the relegation all because of the arrival of Sala but the premier league will never get to see that because Emiliano Sala in no more.
3.Healthy Rivalry. Top goal scorers like Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero will no doubt have had a goal scoring rival in the person of Sala if he were to be playing in the EPL and such a healthy competition would have had a great impact on the league.
4.A New Headache for defenders. With the beautiful pace he has combined with his ability to nod with his head, Emiliano Sala would have been a headache to defenders who will have to deal with him when he is about to score those goals that endears him to the fans.
5.A Unique Personality. Above all else is his sweet and humble personality that so many testified about. He probably might have been a good example for other players in EPL to emulate but unfortunately, the EPL will never have him again.
