The Match of the Day presenter flagged the Juventus star’s tweet before saying: ‘Not the day for this tweet. It really isn’t.’
The Portuguese striker’s picture comes in the wake of Emiliano Sala’s disappearance on Tuesday as he flew from Nantes to Cardiff to complete his move to the Premier League side.
Sala was on board the small plane that went missing over the English channel on Monday night.
The Argentine star, who cost Cardiff £15million, was one of two people boarding the flight back to Wales from Nantes – where he had gone to say goodbye to his former team-mates.
Guernsey Police announced on Tuesday afternoon that the search for the aircraft had been called off for the day at 5pm
A statement read: ‘Search and rescue operations have been suspended as the sun has now set.
‘The current plan is for it to resume at sunrise tomorrow. There will be no further updates tonight.’
French police and the country’s civil aviation authority confirmed the striker, who only completed his move to Wales last weekend, was on the Piper Malibu, which disappeared from radar the previous night.
