Swansea City condemns ‘shameful’ Sala image 

Swansea City have condemned a “shameful” image which appears to mock the death of striker Emiliano Sala.

Sala, 28, had just signed for Cardiff City when the plane he was travelling in crashed into the English Channel, north of Guernsey, on January 21.

Swansea play their south Wales rivals on Sunday and a mocked-up boarding pass for Sala has been shared online.

In the image described as “disgraceful” by Swansea City, the boarding pass has the flight number “D3AD” and the pilot is named as Mikey Dye, a Cardiff fan who died after an attack outside Wembley in 2011.

In a statement, Swansea said: “Swansea City is aware of the disgraceful image currently circulating on social media ahead of Sunday’s South Wales derby in relation to the sad death of Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala.
