They had not won since December 29 and a leap to Leicester (1-0). By fighting Bournemouth (2-0) on Saturday for the 25th anniversary of the Premier League, Cardiff Bluebirds came to an end to run five games without winning. Success – which allows them to return to two points of the 17th place occupied by Burnley – that Neil Warnock wants to commit to Emiliano Sala. "It would have been very proud of us tonight," said Cardiff's coach after the game, for Argentina onwards wounded by the club in Wales but after twelve days ago.
"It was a mobile moment"
"It was a great man, I met with me two months ago and touched me that he was among the fans, it was a moving moment, the audience was incredible, it was important for the club to win today," said Warnock. A number of tributes were paid to the old Nantais before and during the meeting. A picture of Sala had decorated the game's program, as it was written that the player's disappearance "touched the City of Cardiff deeply" and that the club now played for him and driver David Ibbotson.
Flowers were also placed on the central circle and a minute of silence was praised. Argentina's massive typhoid was also used with Sala's name and Cardiff players showed a shirt with Argentina's portrayal after their first goal.
