Cardiff City's statement on Emiliano Sala poisoning report

Following reports that Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson were exposed a "potentially fatal" amount of carbon monoxide, Cardiff City have released a statement expressing their "concern".

A report by The Air Accident Investigation Board has shown Sala was exposed to potentially fatal levels of carbon monoxide before the plane he was traveling in crashed over the English Channel on January 21. That amount can cause seizures, unconsciousness or heart attacks. Anything over 50 percent is considered potentially fatal.

The club-record £15million signing never played a game for Cardiff City after the tragedy as he traveled from France to link up with his new club.

A club statement read: " Cardiff City Football Club is concerned at the AAIB's latest report which once again highlights that the aircraft used for Emiliano Sala was not appropriate. We continue to believe that those who were instrumental in arranging its usage are held to account for this tragedy."
