More than two weeks after the plane carrying Emiliano Sala to a new career in the English Premier League crashed into the sea, police confirmed Thursday that the body recovered from the wreckage was the Argentine soccer player.At 28, Sala had just secured the biggest move of his career after signing for Cardiff.Sala's body was only recovered from the sea on Wednesday before being taken to Dorset in southern England. Sala was formally identified in coroner's examination on Thursday.Although born in Argentina and developed in the Proyecto Crecer youth academy, Sala made a name for himself in soccer in France after initially joining Bordeaux in 2010 .For a tall and powerful forward, Sala had a decent touch and was good at link-up play.Even as Sala's family now mourns his loss, Nantes and Cardiff are in a legal quarrel, which neither club has denied, over settling the transfer payments still outstanding.
