Christian Atsu

Christian Atsu, the Ghanaian professional player has not been found contrary to reports on Wednesday, that the 31-year-old winger had been pulled alive with injuries from the wreckage following the devastating earthquakes that hit Turkey and Syria on Monday, 6 February 2023.

Kahveci, who is the team doctor of the club Atsu plays for in Turkey, Hatayspor, on Wednesday, 8 February 2023, said both the player and sporting director, Taner Savut are still yet to be found.

“When we heard the news that he was taken to Dortyol Hospital, we especially went and looked, but it was not there. At the moment, we accept that [the sporting director] Taner Savut and Christian Atsu were not found, unfortunate,” he said.

Monday’s earthquake has so far claimed the lives of more than 8,700 people while 15,000 others sustained injuries. Hundreds are also missing with rescue efforts underway.

Atsu played for Hatayspor on Sunday, coming on as a substitute and scoring the winning goal in the home game against Kasimpasa.

A former Black Stars player with over 60 caps, Ghanaian leaders such as the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, his vice Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, former President John Mahama and a host of others have called on Ghanaians to pray for Atsu to be rescued alive.
