Leading members of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) have today paid a visit to the grieving family of deceased national star, Christian Atsu.
President of the PFAG, Samuel Osei-Kuffuor led the delegation which included the Association’s Deputy General-Secretary Solomon Torson, Ibrahim Tanko, Augustine Arhinful and John Paintsil among a host of ex-professional footballers and executive members of the Association.
The other members of the contingent were Tetteh Zutah, Yussif Chibsah, Mallam Yahaya, Sam Johnson, John Mensah, Godwin Attram, Peter Ofori Quaye and Kwame Ayew.
The delegation extended its commiserations to the Tsawam family and also presented 50 cartons of water.
Atsu, a key member of the senior national Team the Black Stars, as well as the country’s player union the PFAG, passed on to glory after being caught up in the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that rocked Turkey on February 6th.
As mother body of all professional footballers in the country, the PFAG is still in a state of shock as we come to terms with the unfortunate and untimely demise of our very own star player, Christian Atsu.
The collective thoughts, prayers and well-wishes of all members and associates of the PFAG remain with the family and entire football fraternity. The Association will continue to cherish the legacy left by Christian Atsu in bringing joy to fans and touching lives both on and off the football pitch.
As always, the PFAG continues to stand in solidarity with and for all professional footballers in the country, even in the most difficult of times.
