Hatay, located in southeast Turkey, was one of the hardest-hit areas, with more than 1,200 buildings collapsed and more than 500 people reported dead.

It was reported that Achu, a Ghanaian striker who played for Chelsea and Newcastle in the past and transferred to Hatay last year, was also trapped in a collapsed building.

just one day after he scored the dramatic winning goal and his debut goal in the Turkiye League after being substituted just before the end of the game.

A spokesman for the club said, “Achu was rescued, but the general manager is still in the rubble.”

Goalkeeper Turkaslan of the second division of football is also missing, and the club said, “It is estimated to be in a collapsed building.”

The Turkish government has decided to suspend all sporting events for the time being.

While sports stars mourned the unfortunate news, Kim Yeon-kyung, who played in Turkiye for 8 years, appealed for interest by sharing ways to help.
