“Warm friend, I hope you sleep in peace”… Ki Sung-yong mourns the death of former Newcastle colleague Arts


Foreign media such as Reuters reported the death of Ghanaian national striker Christian Arts (Hataispor) on the 18th (Korean time). The media reported that Art’s body was recovered from a collapsed building in southern Turkey, and his cell phone was also found.

Artz was trapped in a building that collapsed in a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that occurred in southeastern Turkey and Syria on the 6th, and it was unclear whether he was alive or not, but he was rescued safely and is receiving treatment at the hospital. He was initially told that he was taken to the hospital, but this was not true and he eventually passed away.

Condolences continued from the club and players. “We are deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death of a former player in an earthquake,” Newcastle United said. He was a talented player and a special person. It will remain in the memories of our players, staff and fans forever.”

Chelsea also said, “Even though he was not active in the first team, he played a great role, including being selected as the best player of the tournament as a member of the Ghana national team at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. He is deeply saddened by the news that Atsu has fallen victim to the terrible earthquake that hit Turkiye and Syria.” 슬롯사이트
