The gestures were allegedly directed towards the Cardiff fans who are still mourning the death of their deceased striker Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash last month.
As per the Independent, Southampton could ban two of their fans who had allegedly made aeroplane gestures in the match against Cardiff City at the St Mary’s Stadium. The gestures were meant for the fans of the Welsh side who are still mourning the death of their deceased striker Emiliano Sala, who died in a plane crash last month on the way to join his new club from French club Nantes. The South Coast club has released an official statement in this respect as well.
The statement read, “Southampton Football Club can confirm that two fans were detained and had their details taken by police during our match against Cardiff City. Such behaviour has no place in our game and will not be tolerated at St Mary’s.”
The club added, “The club will be taking an extremely firm stance against anyone involved and intends to ban those supporters identified.”
Players from both clubs observed a one minute silence so as to pay respect to the Argentine player before the start of the match.
