Cardiff City Striker Emiliano Sala died from massive injuries to his head and chest and could only be identified by his fingerprints, it has been revealed.

But the body of his pilot pilot David Ibbotson was not found in the wreckage of the Piper Malibu that disappeared over the Channel last month.

The 28-year-old could only be identified by his fingerprints after his body was recovered from the sea.

MySportDab report: “The inquest has heard Emiliano Sala was identified by finger print evidence.

“The cause of death, which was established after a post-mortem, is given as head and chest injuries. A pathologist described the cause of death as “head and trunk injuries”.

“The inquest has been adjourned. The full AAIB investigation into the plane crash is expected to take between six and 12 months, although an interim report is due within a fortnight.”

Brendan Allen, acting senior coroner for Dorset, adjourned proceedings in Bournemouth until November 6 for a pre-inquest review.

According to Daily Mail, Cardiff City star Sala was identified by his fingerprints after the tragic crash which happened after his record £15million deal.

Sala’s body was recovered in a privately-funded search which had been launched after the initial search was called off.

The aircraft remains underwater off the coast of Guernsey in the English Channel.
