‘Chelsea-Newcastle’ Achu, who scored his debut goal two days ago, disappeared after an earthquake in Turkiye


A Ghanaian soccer player who played an active part in the English Premier League (EPL) is also missing while many casualties have occurred in Turkey due to the strongest earthquake in history.

A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Turkiye on the 6th (Korean time). The number of deaths increased rapidly and exceeded 4,000 as of the afternoon of the 7th. Relief efforts are continuing from all over the world for damage recovery and search operations. 슬롯사이트

Christian Achu, a Ghanaian soccer player, also went missing after the earthquake. Even the president of Ghana appealed for Achu’s search. “On behalf of the Ghanaian government and people, we express our sincere condolences for the destruction and loss of life caused by the earthquake,” Ghana’s President Akupo-Addo said in a statement.

Atsu made his professional debut at FC Porto before moving to Chelsea in 2013. He subsequently built up his EPL career, playing for Everton, Bournemouth and Newcastle United. At Newcastle, he played 121 games, scoring 8 goals and providing 10 assists. His EPL career record is 3 goals and 7 assists in 80 games. He also played 60 games for Ghana and helped them win the 2015 African Cup of Nations.

Afterwards, he played an active role in Saudi Arabia’s Alaed for a year, then moved to Hatayspor last summer and entered the Turkiye stage. He played in just three games in the 2022-2023 season, and was substituted in the second half against Kasim Pasha on the 5th and scored his dramatic debut goal, leading the team to a 1-0 victory. However, even before the joy of his goal was extinguished, he was caught up in an earthquake and went missing.

The last twitter post that made me sad was on the 5th. “It was an important win for the team. I’m happy to have my name on the scoreboard,” he wrote.

The former team, Newcastle, also prayed for Achu’s rescue, saying, “I pray for positive news.”
