Ghana football star, Christian Atsu’s two pairs of shoes have been found but the player is still missing 10 days after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Turkey killing thousand of persons.
Atsu agent, Nana Sechere in an official statement on Tuesday accused his club Hatayspor of Turkey of not doing enough in rescue effort to pull the player out of the rubble.
Mr Sechere who said that his room has been located and two pairs of shoes found, added that rescue efforts have been slow due to lack of resources
“We’ve been able to locate Atsu’s exact room location, and we have found two pairs of his shoes
“We received confirmation that thermal imagery was showing signs of up to 5 lives,however, real confirmation of life is through sight,smell and sound.”
“Things are moving incredibly slow and as a result of that many rescues are being delayed, and lives are being lost due to the lack of resources available to the workers.
“It is unfortunate that the club is not on the ground with us, side by side, in the search for Atsu”.
“Their position and influence, accompanied with their local knowledge would be extremely helpful. We implore the President of the club and mayor of Hatay, Lütfü Savaş to provide additional resources to speed up the rescue efforts as a priority”, the statement read.
Over 33, 000 persons have been confirmed dead from the earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria on Monday last week.
Atsu’s wife, Marie-Claire Rupio, said she still prays and believes Atsu is alive.
“He is still trapped under the rubble, but the problem is they don’t have the necessary equipment needed to get them out.
“So he is still missing, and they don’t know where he is.”
“I still pray and believe he’s alive.”
Atsu scored the only goal in his “last” match on Sunday, February 5 as Hatayspor defeated
Kasımpaşa 1-0 in the Turkey League
The 31-year-old has won 65 caps for Ghana national and joined Hatayspor last September after a season with Saudi Arabian team, Al-Raed.
