A year ago, before the game against Saint-Étienne, Nantes had a banner of their legendary footballer Philippe Gondet holding hands with a little boy, with a surname Sala at the back of the shirt.
Philippe Gondet has played for Nantes in the 1960s. He has scored around 150 goals in just 200 games.
The legendary footballer died on January 21, 2018. One year later, on the same day, Emiliano Sala’s plane, which was travelling to Cardiff, went off the radars.
