Hatayspor club doctor, Gurbey Kahveci has hinted that Christian Atsu is yet to be rescued from the rubble.
The Ghana winger was trapped in a rubble after 7.8 magnitude earthquake that occurred in Turkey on Monday.
However, reports went rife that Atsu, together with the club’s sporting director, Taner Savut have been rescued after 26 hours of search and have been admitted at a hospital.
However, Kahveci has hinted that they have been to the hospital that admitted Atsu but he was not found.
He added that they would have to accept that Atsu and the club’s sporting director have not been found.
“When we heard the news that he [Christian Atsu] was taken to Dortyol Hospital, we especially went and looked but he was not there,” he told Hurriyet Turkey.
“At the moment, we accept that the sporting director, Taner Savut and Christian Atsu were not found on Monday night, unfortunately,” he added.
Atsu joined Hatayspor last summer following a short spell with Saudi Arabian topflight side Al Raed.
The former Newcastle United winger scored in Hatayspor’s last game on Sunday and even took to Twitter to revel in grabbing the winner.
