The following statement has been issued by Tan Sri Vincent Tan on Friday, February 8th, 2019.
"I wish to express my deepest heartfelt condolences to the family of Emiliano Sala for their loss. May Emiliano’s soul rest in peace. I am personally very sad over this incident. This fine young man would have been very happy and successful at Cardiff City where he would have made a new home and many friends.
"Cardiff City will continue to work with the AAIB and investigators to find out how the crash happened and to assist Emiliano’s family. We have offered to them to arrange to take Emiliano back to rest with his family in Argentina. Even though he will be there his soul will always be in our hearts. We feel a tremendous loss but the biggest loss is borne by Sala’s family.
"May Sala’s soul rest in peace."
