Ghana international, Christian Atsu has been found alive hours after being trapped under rubble following twin earthquakes that rocked Turkiye and Syria.

There were concerns about the safety of the former Chelsea and Newcastle star after the teammates and members of the club’s technical staff at Turkish Super Lig side Hatayspor, had been pulled from rubble while Atsu remained unseen.

However, reports say that the 31-year-old has been rescued alive with injuries to his right foot and breathing difficulties. He’s been taken to the hospital for medical attention.

Ghanaian journalist Saddick Adams also reported that he was in contact with Atsu’s management team and confirmed the winger was safe.
