Over two weeks after the Turkish earthquake, football player Christian Atsu’s body was discovered beneath the debris of his home, according to his agency.
The 31-year-old Ghanaian international had time with Premier League clubs Everton, Chelsea, and Newcastle.
After the earthquake that destroyed his dwelling in the city of Hatay on February 6th, Atsu has been reported missing.
His team Hatayspor initially stated that he was saved “with injuries,” however that statement was then altered.
Sadly, Christian Atsu’s body was found this morning, his agent Nana Sechere tweeted on Saturday. “It is with the deepest of sorrow that I have to tell to all well wishers that Christian Atsu’s body was retrieved this morning.”
“I send his family and loved ones my sincere sympathies. I’d like to take this chance to thank everyone for their prayers and encouragement.”
