A couple of Southampton fans were caught making gestures taunting Cardiff City fans during their match and will have disciplinary action taken against them.

Emiliano Sala's body was recovered earlier this week. David Ibbotson, who was flying the aircraft, remains missing.

An extensive rescue and recovery operation followed the incident.

AAIB discovered one body in the wreckage and used special remotely operated vehicles recover Sala's body from the wreck.

The Piper Malibu N264DB was en route from France to Cardiff, after the Argentine striker made a quick trip back to his former club Nantes two days after his 15 million pounds transfer to Cardiff was announced, the BBC reported.

"They'll all be reflecting on what's happened and your family is more important than football isn't it?"

Their behaviour emerged in a video published to social media yesterday after Southampton lost 2-1 to Cardiff City at the St Mary's Stadium.

Emiliano Sala was given an emotional tribute during Nantes' first home game since the footballer was confirmed to have died in a plane crash.

As per the Mirror two men have now been detained by the police for making the gestures during the Premier League game.

Their plane had gone missing on January 21 after it crashed off the Channel Islands as they flew from Nantes to Sala's new club Cardiff City.

"The Club will continue to work with Hampshire Police to identify any individuals deemed to have made indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters".

Afterwards, Cardiff manager Neil Warnock dedicated the win to Sala: "We wanted to do it for Emiliano and I'm really proud the lads have done him justice".

"The body brought to Portland Port today (Thursday) has been formally identified as that of professional footballer Emiliano Sala".
