Speaking on TV channel CNEWS, Nantes President Waldemar Kita learned of the news of striker Emiliano Sala’s disappearance over the English Channel last night in real-time and responded as follows.
“I think that he came back because he wanted to say goodbye to his friends. He was a polite, kind and adorable boy, loved by everyone. He was very respectful, very courteous. I am thinking about his family and all his friends. For the rest, we don’t know yet. I am still hoping that it is not finished, that he is somewhere, that he will be there. I have just found about this like you have, like the journalists. I was not even aware that he was at Nantes. He is no longer owned by Nantes, he does what he wants. And I say that because I am still hopeful that we will find him.”
