Horacio, the father of late Cardiff City striker, Emiliano Sala, has reportedly passed away barely three months after the death of his son.

According to reports, Horacio passed away on Friday at age 58 following a heart attack in the village where he lived.

The news of his death was confirmed by Progreso mayor, Julio Mueller.

Confirming his death, Mueller said, “Horacio’s wife called me at five o’ clock in the morning (0800 GMT). The doctors were already there, he never managed to get over the death of Emi.”

It would be recalled that Argentina striker Emiliano was killed when the aircraft he was travelling in came down in the England Channel.

Emiliano, 28, was on his way to Cardiff City after the Premier League side had signed him for a club record £15million ($19.7million) from Nantes.

The pilot, David Ibbotson, also died in the January 21 tragedy.
