"Emiliano Sala, Emiliano, Emiliano, Emiliano Sa-la," the 37,000-strong crowd sang with same unrelenting intensity Sala showed throughout his career with Nantes, Caen and Bordeaux -- the club he joined nine years ago after leaving Argentina to forge a career in France.Nantes has now retired the No. 9 as a tribute to Sala.Throughout his career, Sala won respect and admiration wherever he played because of his work ethic and unselfish attitude on the field .Those traits won him the admiration of Nantes coach Vahid Halilhodzic, himself a similarly hard-working striker with Nantes in the 1980s.Sala was the ideal teammate, one who became a friend to several Nantes players.
