Christian Atsu’s wife, Marie Clara Rupio, with whom he has three children, has spoken for the second time since the player’s death, which has been trending on social media for five days.
Last Tuesday, reports on social media claimed that the player had been discovered alive and had been rushed to the hospital for treatment.
Ghanaians took to the internet to rejoice over the news, but an updated report dismissed the claims that Atsu had been found.
Christian Atsu’s wife revealed in an exclusive interview with BBC News that the last time she spoke with her husband was two days before the incident, on Saturday.
She stated that Christian Atsu’s manager confirmed to her that there are still some people alive beneath the Hatay Renaissance building where her husband is currently trapped, but the rescue team lacks the necessary equipment to rescue these people.
Marie who sounded very dejected throughout the interview also revealed that their kids have been crying ever since they read and watched the news on the TV.
Although, all hope is lost the strong wife sounded very confident about her husband’s well-being and possible rescue alive.
