Emiliano Sala’s sister is reportedly in a critical condition after trying to take her own life.

It comes nearly two-and-a-half years after the footballer died in a plane crash off the coast of England.

And Romina, who was the spokesperson for the family following the accident in 2019, is in a 'critical condition', according to Argentine media [via Get French Football News].

The Argentine was first to travel to Britain following news of her brother going missing and was a 'driving force' to push authorities in the search.

Sala was on a private plane on January 19, having agreed a transfer from Nantes to Cardiff, when the jet went missing.

It happened over Alderney in the Channel Islands, sparking a huge search by authorities.

Romina has regularly posted on social media in memory of her brother, who would now be 30 years old.

Sharing an image on his birthday, October 31, two years ago, she wrote: “There are no words that can describe the pain.

"Happy birthday brother! Where ever you are, give us the strength to go on.

"I wish everything were different… I promise you we will not stop until the end. Kisses to heaven."

Sala was born in Argentina and joined Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in 2010, staying for five years before heading to Nantes.

In 2019, then-Cardiff manager Neil Warnock invited the former forward to watch a game against Newcastle.

Autopsies and investigations have since suggested that the plane suffered an incident involving carbon monoxide.
