News has come from Argentina that late footballer Emiliano Sala’s father has died of a heart attack , three months after his son’s passing.
“2019 doesn’t let up in shocking us with news in this town,” Julio Muller, a local politician said.
“At 5 o’clock in the morning, the lady, his wife, rang me and she was very upset.
“The doctors were there but when I arrived at their home, he had already died.
Daniel Ribero, the president of local football club San Martín de Progreso was astounded at the incident as he had been in touch with Horacio quite recently as he says :
“I was with him just this week,” Ribero said.
“I came across him in the street and we spent half an hour talking about the soya harvest, his truck… I noted that he seemed better, he wanted to talk.”
Emiliano Sala, Horacio’s son, died tragically in January when a plane he was flying on with pilot David Ibbotson crashed in the English Channel en route from Nantes to Cardiff.
