Atsu honoured with mural in Tema
The Late Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu has been honoured with a mural at the Awudu Issaka Park in Tema.
The former Ghana International last Saturday morning was confirmed dead after getting stuck under rubble following an earthquake that struck in Turkey.
While tributes continue to pour in for the former Chelsea and FC Porto star from around the world with loved ones commiserating with the family of Atsu at his residence in Accra, Kingsley Kofi Deffor, a mural artist, who happens to be a big fan of Atsu decided to honour the deceased footballer with a mural of him.
Speaking to 3Sports on what inspired him, he revealed that Atsu has once been his source of joy.
“It came into my mind that, if I get a wall, I will do a mural of him [Atsu] to honour him because he has made us happy before.
“There was a goal he scored that I was really really happy. He scored the goal from the touchline. He just kick the ball from that line straight into the pole [goalpost] made me happy and it was amazing I was like woo, this guy.”
Atsu played for Feyenoord and Cheetah FC in Ghana before joining Porto abroad.
