Christian Atsu: From fisherman’s son to ‘one in a million’ Black Star

The son of a fisherman, Christian Atsu never got caught in the trappings of fame.

Humble beginnings meant the Ghana midfielder, who lost his life in the recent earthquakes that devastated Turkey and Syria, tried to use his success to help others in their lives.

His generosity and charitable nature led one former international team-mate to describe Atsu as “one in a million”.

“He helped a lot of people solve their problems, gave cash out to those in need,” John Paintsil told BBC Sport Africa.

“Atsu’s mind was so good that it could come up with different ideas.

“He was jovial and creative, like a movie star,” the former Fulham and West Ham defender added.

“We have lost a great soul. He was one in a million because he sometimes put others before himself.”

The ‘Ghana Messi’

Perhaps the highlight of Atsu’s international career came at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Equatorial Guinea where he scored two goals en route to the final which was won by Ivory Coast on penalties.

Nonetheless, the left-footed midfielder picked up two awards of his own for best goal and best player at the tournament.
