Atsu was discovered dead in the quake ruins in Turkey.

After last week’s significant earthquake, Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu’s body was discovered underneath the residence where he resided in southern Turkey, his Turkish agent reported on Saturday.

As an apartment building in the province of Hatay collapsed on February 6, Atsu, a 31-year-old man, went missing.

Murat Uzunmehmet informed reporters in Hatay, “Atsu’s lifeless body was located under the wreckage.” “Other things are continuously being removed at this time. Also discovered was his phone.”

Newcastle also paid tribute on their official website: “A talented player and a special person, he will always be fondly remembered by our players, staff and supporters.”

He helped Ghana win 65 caps and go to the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations final, where they were defeated by Ivory Coast on penalties. In 2019, he was last chosen to play for Ghana.

He moved from Porto to Chelsea in 2013 and spent time on loan at a number of organizations, including Vitesse and Bournemouth.


Hatayspor got information that led to reports that Atsu had been saved a day after the earthquake; however, they later confirmed the reports were tragically false and the player was still missing.

Also, it had stated that Taner Savut, the club’s sporting director, was still missing. There is no sign of Savut.

May his soul rest in peace.
