Following a report by Ghanasocer.net alleging that Christian Atus was dealing with marital problems prior to his untimely death, some Ghanaians have taken to the comments section of the report to share their thoughts on the whole ordeal.
According to Ghanasoccernet’s official website, an insider who contacted their editors revealed that, while Atsu was active in his sporting duties, he was dying on the inside. He was going through a lot on the inside.
Atsu’s personal life was complicated by the breakdown of his marriage to his long-term partner Marie-Claire Rupio.
Twasam is said to have spent two years before his death attempting to end his 11-year marriage, which had produced three beautiful children.
Atsu and Rupio were [technically] separated and she did not want to have anything to do with the former Vitesse Arnhem and Rio Ave player.
Their marriage began to deteriorate during the final stages of his contract at Newcastle and the duo needed legal proceedings to go separate ways.
Observers became suspicious about the Atsu-Rupio marriage after he failed to support his wife publicly when she published her popular Stop Bullying Me book which received 5 out of 5 stars and had some rave reviews on Amazon.
The insider is reported to have said the following.
”When his mother-in-law moved in with them in the UK somewhere in 2021, Atsu’s marital problems began.
Atsu felt alone in the home as a result of the wife’s increased focus on the mother. He sometimes found it challenging to play with his children because his mother-in-law has taken control of everything in the home.
‘Atsu was enraged to the core at this. So, in order for them to continue living their private lives, he instructed the wife to politely request that her mother relocates to Germany.
