Given that he played football at the greatest level, President Weah gets along well with many Ghanaian players. On Wednesday, the Ballon d’Or winner dispatched a delegation to the Atsu family home to express his condolences and give the family a $10,000 donation.
The trip was led by former Ghanaian international Kwame Ayew, who also presented the donation on President Weah’s behalf.
Atsu was found dead in the wreckage following the earthquake in Turkey on Saturday, and his death was officially declared.
After the terrible earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria two weeks ago, there had been days of active search.
Many people have sent their sympathies to the football player’s family and loved ones as tributes have poured in from near and far.
Abedi Ayew Pele and his family visited the grieving family on Monday and even gave them some things.
On Tuesday, more former players visited the family of a deceased teammate to offer their condolences.
Football players like Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari visited the family of the late Christian Atsu to offer their condolences.
Former Black Stars players Baffour Gyan, Emmanuel Agyamang-Badu, and Haminu Dramani were also in attendance.
On Sunday evening, Atsu’s mortal remains arrived in Ghana. To greet the body, a brief ceremony was staged in the VIP area of the Kotoka International Airport.
