Before the President Cup match between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko on March 5, 2023, the (GHALCA) chairman Kudjoe Fianoo has announced that his organisation will pay tribute to Christian Atsu.
On February 6, 2023, an earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria claimed the life of Christian Atsu.
Twelve days passed while Atsu was missing before his body was discovered in the wreckage.
The deceased midfielder’s mortal remains were transported to Ghana on a Turkish Airlines flight on Sunday and have since been deposited at the 37 Military Hospital.
The former Ashantigold SC Chief Executive Officer hinted that Atsu would be honoured by GHALCA during the President Cup in an interview with Happy FM.
“We are all saddened by the demise of Atsu, however, if things go as expected, we will organise a curtain-raiser game for him before the President Cup,” he said
