Emiliano Sala's cousin has insisted that someone needs to take responsibility for the death of the 28-year-old Argentinian footballer, as mourners paid their final respects.

Sala died in a plane crash over the English Channel last month as he travelled from Nantes to Cardiff, having joined the Premier League club for £15m just days earlier.

His cousin Martin Gatti told reporters he thought the player was "forced" on to the single-engine plane, and claimed there were "irregularities" in the crash.

"They can't say a plane just crashed and they both died and that's it... I have seen many irregularities from the beginning," he said.

"I think Emiliano was forced to board that plane, made to board a plane that was not in good condition, with a pilot who wasn't prepared, alone, and at night. Where were his (Sala's) representatives? Where were the representatives?

"If you happen to be the most important player ever sold in the history of the club (French club Nantes), they could have at least have taken care of him, at the very least they should have taken care of him."

Speaking to Sky News, Mr Gatti added: "Emiliano, for everyone in this town, was a really great guy. He was from a humble family background, but since he was very young he fought and fought for his success.

"He was always humble, he didn't play up to the cameras and the media, he was very down to earth."

Mourners paid their final respects to the striker at a memorial service in Progreso, Santa Fe on Saturday.

His body was laid out inside the gymnasium where he first learned to play football.

Many of those attending the public service wore the red and black shirt of their local side, while some fans draped a banner outside which said: "Emi, You'll Never Walk Alone."

There were emotional scenes inside the Atletico y Social San Martin de Progreso gymnasium throughout the day - and the footballer's coffin was surrounded by wreaths donated by local football clubs and a nearby primary school.

Earlier, Sala's coffin was carried out of the building and into a hearse by several of his loved ones - including his brother, his agent, and one of his teammates from FC Nantes.
