Testimonies about Christian Atsu’s selflessness continue to pour in since his death was announced in February.
Today, family, friends, footballers and top personalities including President Akufo-Addo have gathered to pay their last respect to the late Hatayspor player.
One of them was veteran commentator Kwabena Yeboah, who filed past the body this morning as the former Black Stars player’s funeral is being held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
Speaking to JoyNews, Mr Yeboah eulogised Christian’s humility despite being at the pinnacle of his career.
For him, the late footballer’s humility is worth emulating.
“He never allowed his fame and well to get into his head. Often times when footballers get very famous, they tend to be a bit haughty and they tend to be a bit super zealous. He never ever got to that point. He never forgot his roots,” he added.
Atsu, 31, was found dead on February 18, 2023, following the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria on February 6, which killed more than 50,000 people in both countries.
His last club was Hatayspor club.
