A little more than a week has passed since it became known that Christian Atsu the Taispor player could not survive in the ruins and was killed in the earthquake in Turkey three weeks ago.
As I remember, Atsu stayed with some of his friends on the ninth floor of a building that collapsed and two days later it was reported that the former Ghana national team player was rescued and survived but five days later the bitter and true news of his death arrived.
The one who commented on the tragedy today (Thursday) was Avraham Grant, who coached Atso in the Ghana national team.
"A week ago we were so happy to hear that Atsu survived and is probably fine. But after a week the situation got worse and we got the bad news.

"It was one of the saddest days of my life. Christian was a great and kind person. It's very difficult for me to talk about him. It's a big shock."

Grant also added: "I received updates from the first night of the earthquake, and when I realized that it was a player from the Ghana national team who was missing, I inquired and found out that it was indeed Etsu. I immediately tried to help and spoke to his agent and then I contacted the Israeli aid delegation to Turkey."
