Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has recounted his last conversation with his late Black Stars colleague Christian Atsu before his passing.
Atsu died in Turkey after a devastating earthquake struck parts of the country on Monday, February 6, 2023. He was declared dead on February 18 after his body was retrieved from the rubble.
Wakaso, a close friend of Atsu, spoke to Peace FM about the sad demise of the former Chelsea and Newcastle star.
In the interview, Wakaso revealed that he had a telephone conversation with Atsu on Sunday evening after the latter’s last game.
Atsu played in Hataysport’s game against Kasimpasa and scored the only goal with the last kick of the match.
According to Wakaso, he called Atsu immediately after the winger shared videos of the goal on social media.
In their conversation, he added, he teased Atsu that he was making noise on social media because he scored a ‘not so special goal.’.
“I told him to stop making noise over that ‘allo’ goal and he laughed over it. We talked for a while before he told me he was going to call back. That callback would have taken two to three days to happen but the unfortunate thing happened the next day,” he said.
