Speaking to L’Équipe, the mother of deceased FC Nantes & Cardiff City striker Emiliano Sala questioned the negligence of the intermediary in the deal, notorious agent Willie McKay.
“Is it the fault of the negligence of the airport, the pilot, the intermediary? This man has not spoken with me. I am waiting for him to do so. And I have not received a single response from him. He is the one who made the plane available.”
McKay responded to the grieving mother by speaking to the same outlet:
“I did not know that she wanted to speak with me. I already spoke with Emiliano’s sister during the ceremony at Progreso. Meissa N’Diaye (Sala’s agent) also introduced me to his brother and I paid homage to him in the name of my family. But if Emi’s mother wants me to come, not a problem: I will go and see her in Argentina. Otherwise, I would be delighted to welcome her to mine, in my house. I can understand that she says that she wants to know everything, because me too, I want to know everything about this tragic accident.”
