Until his death was discovered, the forward was confined for 11 days.
Some attribute Murat Uzunmehmet, who is thought to have had a strong friendship with Christian Atsu, with helping to arrange the forward’s move to Hatayaspor.
The news that Atsu had passed away, as reported by Uzunmehmet, appears to be supported by a number of Turkish sites.
Christian Atsu was reportedly among those trapped under debris on Monday, February 6, following the earthquakes that shook Turkey and Syria. As a result, both current president Nana Akufo-Addo and former president John Mahama asked for prayers for his speedy recovery.
Atsu’s club announced the following day that he had been saved with merely a foot injury. Hatayaspor later revealed that it was merely a matter of identity confusion and that Atsu had not been located.
People’s confidence and optimism that Atsu would also be discovered alive increased as a result of the widespread distribution of footage showing individuals being rescued.
