Following claims that he was stranded after an earthquake in Turkey, Ghanaian player Christian Atsu has been discovered alive.
The 31-year-old, who played in the Premier League for Chelsea and Newcastle, was affected by the 7.7-magnitude earthquake on Monday. Atsu was eventually pulled from the wreckage and sent to the hospital with breathing problems and injuries to his right foot.
Atsu’s current club, Hatayspor, is situated in the Turkish city of Hatay, which is seen to be one of the regions most negatively impacted by the catastrophe. Taner Savut, the club’s sporting director, and an interpreter were reportedly stranded after the earthquake in addition to Atsu.
Newcastle’s Twitter account published the following:
“Praying for some positive news, @ChristianAtsu20.”
On Sunday evening, Atsu participated in the game and scored the game-winning goal against Kasimpasa at home. Proving that he still has a lot to offer with his rich experience at club and on national level.
Atsu has played for teams like Chelsea, Newcastle, Bournemouth and FC Porto.
