The football world was left in shock on February 18th, 2023, when news broke of the sudden death of Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu.
- Atsu, who was just 31 years old at the time of his passing, was a talented winger.

Atsu began his career at Porto in 2011, where he quickly made a name for himself as a promising young talent. His impressive performances caught the eye of several top European clubs, and in 2013 he was signed by Chelsea.

During his time at Newcastle, Atsu became a fan favorite, thanks to his pace, skill, and work rate on the wing. He made over 120 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals and providing 14 assists.
He was also a regular for the Ghanaian national team, earning 68 caps and scoring 10 goals.
Atsu’s sudden death has been a shock to the footballing community, with tributes pouring in from fans, players, and coaches from around the world. Christian Atsu was found dead on Saturday after he went missing for days after the earthquakes in Turkey.
In addition to his talent on the football pitch, Atsu was known for his charitable work and his commitment to giving back to his community.
He was an ambassador for the Right to Dream Academy, a Ghanaian organization that helps young people from underprivileged backgrounds to develop their footballing talent.
He was also involved in a number of other philanthropic endeavors, including supporting local schools and hospitals in his hometown of Ada Foah.
