NANTES’ French Cup clash tomorrow night is postponed after the disappearance of Emiliano Sala, who is feared dead.
The Ligue 1 club are in shock after their player was on a flight that vanished over the English Channel.
Police have confirmed that Sala, 28, was on board a Piper Malibu plane that lost contact around 8.30pm near the Casquets lighthouse off the island of Alderney.
Air Traffic Control confirmed the plane was travelling from Nantes in Western France to Cardiff when it vanished.
Sala completed a £15million move from Nantes to the Bluebirds last week, with Neil Warnock’s side looking to win their relegation fight by bringing in the forward.
Nantes were due to face L’Entente in the Coupe de France on Wednesday night, but the match is now off.

Sala said goodbye to his team-mates yesterday after sitting out Cardiff’s 3-0 defeat at Newcastle.
He hauntingly captioned the image: “The last goodbye.”
He was only in France to collect his belongings and say his farewells before embarking on a new life in South Wales.
The Argentina ace has spent his whole career at clubs in France, playing for Bordeaux, Caen and Nantes, before his big-money move to the Premier League.
