Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu has gone missing after the earthquake in Turkey.


How was everything?

Many people died and were injured after the earthquakes that hit Turkey and Syria on Monday. Italy, on the other hand, has tsunami warnings. Meanwhile, at least two players are missing. One of them is the Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu, who has used his trading in Porto, the Blues, the Toffees, Malaga and the Magpies in the past.

Player Christian Atsu is believed to be trapped under the rubble. Meanwhile, his teammate Turkish footballer Onur Ergun, Hatayspor sports director Taner Savut and the club’s translator are also buried in the ruins. Meanwhile, Hatayspor’s current coach Volkan Demirel pleaded for help. “Help. I want to ask you to send all the resources you have,” said the coach. “It’s not just AntaKya or Hatay. Please, for God’s sake, people are dying here.”


A little about the topic

The Ghana national team has 60 appearances and 10 goals. Christian Atsu had a brief spell in Malaga in 2016 when he arrived on loan from the Blues. Christian played 12 games in which he scored two goals. The Blues signed him from Porto in 2013 in exchange for three million euros, but he never made his debut for Chelsea. His best spell in the PL was in the Magpies, for which Christian Atsu played 121 games, scored eight goals and produced 10 assists.

The player joined Hatayspor on a free transfer from Saudi Arabian club Al Raed. Atsu played 79 minutes of football in four matches. Christian just scored the winning goal from the 97th minute of the free kick last weekend against Kasimpasa (1-0). The government’s response was swift as Turkey suspended all sporting activities.
