Lineker, Wright slammed for linking Cristiano’s jet pic to Emiliano Sala

Even non-Ronaldo fans had none of Gary Lineker and Duncan Wright’s comments…

January 22 marked the sad disappearance of new Cardiff City signing, Emiliano Sala. French authorities confirmed that the former Nantes FC striker was as passenger on the Piper Malibu aircraft that went missing on its way from Nantes, France to Cardiff, Wales.

“We were very shocked upon hearing the news that the plane had gone missing. We expected Emiliano to arrive last night into Cardiff and today was due to be his first day with the team,” the Premier League club’s CEO, Ken Choo, declared in an official statement.

“Our owner, Tan Sri Vincent Tan, and chairman, Mehmet Dalman, are all very distressed about the situation.

“We made the decision first thing this morning to call off training with the thoughts of the squad, management staff and the entire Club with Emiliano and the pilot.”

As of now, there has been no encouraging news in regards to Sala’s whereabouts amid fears he is no more.

Meanwhile, on the same day in the camp of Cristiano Ronaldo, it was time for a celebration of the tax fraud saga’s long-awaited conclusion. The Turin-based Portuguese football star was in Madrid with his partner Georgina Rodriguez on Tuesday morning to finally plead guilty for tax evasion.

He accepted a fine of 18.8m euros (21.4m US dollars) and got his 23-month prison sentence suspended. Quite the expected end to this long court case. Satisfied with the outcome, the father-of-four flew out of the Spanish capital looking content in images shot in a private jet.

Gary Lineker, well known for his admiration for Lionel Messi and criticism of Cristiano Ronaldo on Twitter, made a meal out of the number 7’s tweet. The Sun writer Duncan Wright followed suit and a lot of fans bashed the two men for doing that.
