Christian Atsu’s former manager Abdul Haye Yartey says it’s almost impossible to find a replacement for the deceased footballer.
The Cheetah FC owner and bankroller described Atsu as “one in a generation” for his exploits on and off the field
It will be very difficult to get someone like him, he is one in a generation,” he told the Graphic Sport in an interview.
“We have constructed an Atro Turf Pitch and we are naming it after him, there is also a memorial match to be staged in his honour.”
Meanwhile, President Nana Akufo-Addo has described the late Atsu as a special gift from God to Ghana.
According to him, the former Black Stars winger’s death was a tragedy to the whole country and, therefore, extended his condolences to the family of the deceased.
The President said this when Atsu’s family met with him at the Jubilee House on Monday to discuss the funeral arrangements.
Atsu was confirmed dead on Saturday, February 18, 2023, after his lifeless body was pulled out of the rubble in the wake of the earthquake in Turkey.
