Footballer Christian Atsu Pulled Dead Out Of Turkey Earthquake Rubble

The body of ex-Chelsea and Newcastle winger, Christian Atsu has been found dead in the aftermath of the earthquake in Turkey.

Atsu’s agent, Nana Sechere confirmed and disclosed this on his Twitter handle as reported by Sky News on Saturday.

He wrote, “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to announce to all well-wishers that sadly Christian Atsu’s body was recovered this morning. My deepest condolences go to his family and loved ones.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their prayers and support.....I ask that whilst we make the necessary arrangements, everyone would please respect the privacy of the family during this very difficult time”.

Aged 31, the Ghanaian player according to Sky News had been misidentified and falsely reported as hospitalized last week following the earthquake which killed more than 45,000 people.

Atsu spent eight years signed by Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Bournemouth, Everton and Newcastle.
He moved to Turkey last September, signing for Antakya side Hatayspor on a one-year contract.
Atsu’s Turkey-based agent, Murat Uzunmehmet, told reporters that the player was found beneath the rubble of his home in southern Turkey.

He said: “Atsu’s lifeless body was found under the rubble. Currently, more items are still being taken out. His phone was also found”.

He is survived by wife Marie-Claire Rupio Atsu and their three children.

  5. This is so sad ๐Ÿ˜ข. I've been praying that this guy be found alive, but with everyday that passed I was losing hope. When he signed the contract to go to Turkey, he didn't know that he was signing his death warrant. RIP

  6. I hope he didn’t suffer

  7. Condolences to his family and loved ones. Gosh, he was only in Turkey a short time. So young. 45,000 ppl dying in one event is no joke. I have always wanted to visit Turkey, but likely will not. So many natural disasters since the start of the year.

  8. God please rest his soul ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜žsuch a painful death
