Southampton said, Two Southampton supporters could be banned from the club after taunting Cardiff City fans about the death of striker Emiliano Sala.

Argentine Sala died in a plane crash last month days after joining Cardiff and his body was found on Thursday.

The club said in a statement, “Southampton Football Club can confirm that two fans were detained and had their details taken by police during our match against Cardiff City,”

“The club will be taking an extremely firm stance against anyone involved and intends to ban those supporters identified,” they added.

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock said, “We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I’m really proud the lads have done him justice,”
