The Ghana Football Association has asked for a search for its winger Christian Atsu who has been missing since the earthquake in Turkey.
Ghana made the request after the 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Turkey and Syria did not reach Astu on Monday. About 5,000 people have lost their lives in the earthquake. The rescue workers reported that there was a problem in rescue and relief as the cold increased along with the rain.
The Turkish government has announced that rescue and search operations are continuing in the affected areas and the search for player Atsu is also underway.
31-year-old Atsu of Hotespor scored the decisive goal in the last minute against Kasimpas in the Super League game on Sunday. Atsu played for Newcastle United for five seasons. The Ghana Football Association has been trying to contact Atsu, but has not received any news about him.
“We hope that Christian Atsu is safe,” the statement issued by the Ghana Football Association said, “We also wish for the health of those affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. We are trying to contact the Turkish Football Association and Hotespor.” We are waiting for good news.’
