Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock revealed his team missed on some transfers as some players hesitated to sign after the disappearance of Emiliano Sala.
Sala was due to arrive at the Cardiff City stadium after completing his club record £15m move from Nantes. The striker took a small plane as he was coming back to the Wales capital but the small aircraft carrying him and the pilot David Ibbotson went missing over the English channel.
A thorough search was organised but they couldn’t find anything except some debris of the small flight. Cardiff had hoped to end their ongoing struggle with Sala’s assistance but they now have a mountain to climb.
The newly promoted side did manage to get in touch with some forwards but Warnock insists after the Sala incident players didn’t want to come. One or two of the strikers we were talking about didn’t really want to come in the circumstances,
“They didn’t want to come in after what’s happened. So it’s been a very difficult window.”
The BlueBirds roped in defender Leandro Bacuna and forward Oumar Niasse and it remains to be seen how they make use of these players in the rest of the season.
