Christian Atsu: Ghana winger joins Turkish club Hatayspor

According to multiple reports, the former Chelsea player has been transported to a nearby hospital where he is expected to recover.

 Christian Atsu, a former winger for the Black Stars and Hatayspor, is said to have been discovered alive after going missing under the wreckage of today's terrible earthquake in Turkey.

I'm still in touch with Christian Atsu's management, tweeted Saddick Adams, an award-winning Ghanaian journalist. They have received confirmation from Atsu's teammate that the player has been located and taken to the hospital. They anticipate his team will issue a formal announcement soon. He continues to be in everyone's prayers. God will keep him safe.
Earlier media reports said that Atsu and Tanur Savut, the director of his club, had been buried beneath the debris. Both men were thought to have been in Turkey at the time of the disaster.
After a devastating earthquake ripped through Turkey and Syria, leaving devastation and wreckage on both sides of the border, more than 2000 people have perished to date, and rescuers are frantically trying to extricate survivors from beneath the rubble.

Around 4 a.m. on Monday, one of the largest earthquakes to hit the area in a century jolted locals out of their beds and sent tremors as far as Lebanon and Israel.


According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the 7.8-magnitude earthquake's epicenter was 24.1 kilometers (14.9 miles) beneath the surface, 23 kilometers (14.2 miles) east of Nurdagi in Turkey's Gaziantep region.

Last night in the Turkish league, Christian Atsu scored the game-winning goal for Hatayspor off the bench.

As Hatayaspor defeated Kasimpasa, the 31-year-old scored his first goal for the organization.
