It has been revealed that Ghanaian soccer player Christian Achu finally lost his life in the earthquake in Turkiye.
While his current team, Hatayspor, as well as his former teams Chelsea, Newcastle United, Everton, Vitesse Arnhem, Malaga, and Porto were in sorrow, former national football team captain Ki Sung-yong, who played with him at Newcastle, did not hide his grief.
Turkey 1st Division Hatayspor officially announced the death of Achu on the 18th (Korean time).
Local media Asfor reported, “According to the Achu agent, Achu’s body was found under the rubble of a building. Currently, his cell phone and other belongings are being found.”
Achu went missing in the aftermath of a 7.8-magnitude earthquake that occurred in southeastern Turkey and Syria on the 6th. There was once a foreign report that he had been rescued, but this was a complete misinformation.
In the end, many people are sad that the death was confirmed through the local media after 12 days of disappearance.
Meanwhile, Ki Sung-yong, who played with Achu, could not hide his sadness.
On the 18th, Ki Sung-yong uploaded a picture of him training in Newcastle with Achu on his SNS and said, “My friend Christian left this land due to the Turkiye earthquake disaster. When we were together in Newcastle, Christian was always sincere and always warm to me. He was a good friend. I didn’t think the last contact I had last month would be the last, but it really hurts my heart.” 먹튀검증

Immediately after the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Ki Sung-yueng transferred from Swansea City to Newcastle United and played for two years under coach Rafael Benitez. At that time, Achu ate rice with him in Newcastle.
