“When Christian went to Porto and succeeded in the trials, Porto went on to pay him 800 euros a month,” Yartey explained in an interview with TV3.

“So I received 800 euros through Western Union from Christian and I was so happy thinking he had sent me money, but his call followed up.

“He said the 800 euros he had sent was equivalent to x amount of Ghana cedis, which he ordered me to give to the church.”

The tragic loss of Christian Atsu has brought to bear a lot of his silent good deeds, proving that we have lost a great person.
