“Thank you for everything” is Asamoah Gyan’s message to late Christian Atsu after commiserating with his family and signing his Book of Condolence.
This was a caption the former Black Stars’ captain gave to a 50 seconds video on his twitter where he was being described by the late Atsu as the finest striker he saw on the continent.
Appearing on a sports programme on GTV, late Christian Atsu extolled Ghana’s all-time top scorer’s exploits likening him to Brazil’s goal poacher, Luiz de Nazario Ronaldo Lima who has been regarded by pundits of the game as one of the best strikers of all time.

Meanwhile, Gyan had earlier joined a league of other footballers to sign the Book of Condolence opened in memory of his late colleague.
The former Captain of the Black Stars together with former teammates Sulley Ali Muntari, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu and Haminu Dramani visited the Twasam family to commiserate with them Tuesday morning.
Whilst mourning their late colleague and brother, they used the opportunity to sign the book of condolence opened in honour of the ex Ghana international who was crowned Player of the Tournament at the 2015 African Cup of Nations.
He also consoled Atsu’s twin sister, Christiana Atsupie Twasam in the process.
Atsu was playing for Turkish side Hatayspor before he was trapped under the rubble of his apartment following an earthquake that occurred in northern Syria and southern Turkey claiming over 40,000 lives.
He was found dead after almost two weeks of missing under the rubble, and brought home on Sunday, February 19, 2021 where the family and some state officials received his remains.
Exactly two weeks after the incident, another earthquake struck Turkey with casualties yet to be known.
