I am deeply saddened to hear the devastating news of the passing of my neighbour, my small brother, and my young friend, the late Christian Atsu, who was a victim of the recent earthquake in Turkey.

I knew him personally, and in his formative years in the game of soccer, I had the opportunity to interact with him during his early training. I would like to express my deepest condolences and sincere sympathy to the bereaved family and his friends everywhere for this irreplaceable loss. Rest In Peace, Small Brother”, George Weah eulogized.

Christian Atsu had been trapped under the wreckage of the Hatayaspor Renaissance building for 10 days sore days before he was found and finally pulled out.

Unfortunately, he had been dead for days before the rescue team found his mortal remains.

The mortal remains of Christian Atsu Twasam arrived at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on Sunday night, February 19, as earlier slated.

The body of the former Black Stars winger was conveyed on a Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul in a coffin draped in the national flag.

On its arrival at KIA, the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) received the corpse, accompanied by the Tsawam family, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), and the Government.
