Missing footballer Emiliano Sala reportedly sent a message to his family saying he was on a plane “that looks like it’s going to fall apart”.
Media in Argentina is reporting that Sala, 28, dispatched a WhatsApp voice recording to his loved ones saying he was “really scared”.
Sala was one of two people on a Cardiff-bound plane that has not been seen since disappearing from radars on Monday evening.
The striker was on his way to begin a new chapter in his footballing career at Premier League club Cardiff City.
He was announced as their record €17.1 million signing at the weekend after Cardiff reached a deal with his previous club Nantes.
Sala returned to the French city to say goodbye to ex-teammates on Monday before boarding the plane to Cardiff in the evening.
