Christian Atsu’s Turkish agent Murat Uzun Mehmet has confirmed “Christian Atsu has been found dead”.
The 31-year-old has passed away following the devastating earthquake that struck Turkey’s south-eastern border 11 days ago and has claimed the lives of over 35,000 people.
Atsu is currently contracted to Turkish side Hatayspor and scored a spectacular 97th-minute free kick in their 1-0 win over Kasimpasa in the Turkish Super Lig on 5 February.
In recent heartbreaking developments, it has now been revealed that he was set to leave the country but changed his mind after netting in that victory.
