Christian Atsu met his untimely death in February after a deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Syriar and Turkey with the southern city of Hatayspor hardest-hit.

 

After 12 days of search, the Ghanaian footballer’s body was found under the rubble of his apartment.

His body was brought back to Ghana on Sunday, February 19 via Turkish Airlines.

The 31-year-old Atsu played 65 times for the Black Stars and contributed 19 goals.

 

He also featured for European giants like FC Porto, Chelsea and Newcastle.

Until his death, he was a player of Turkey’s Hatayspor, whose officials are expected to be in town for the funeral service.
