Mubarak Wakaso, a midfielder for the Black Stars, has acknowledged that it will take him some time to adjust to the loss of his close friend Christian Atsu.
In a tribute to his deceased friend, Mubarak Wakaso shared the emotional pain he has been going through ever since it was announced that Christian Atsu had passed away.
He recalled some of their enjoyable times together while acknowledging that he would find it challenging to move on from this experience.
“It’s so difficult for me to express in words how I am feeling. Since hearing about the earthquake on 6th February, I had hope that you were still alive. I never believed that this hope would turn into sadness. You were my everyday guy, my friend, my brother. We played together, we laughed together we ate together.
“You were someone who I trusted in everything because in a good or bad situation, you was always there for me. I have been here just looking at our pictures, reading our messages, watching our videos. All I have now is the memories in which I will cherish forever. Rest in perfect peace, Love from your brother Wakaso Mubarak,” he said.
Wakaso was among a host of former teammates of Christian Atsu present at his funeral held at the forecourt of the State House on Friday, 17 March 2023.
Wakaso arrived with the likes of Muntari, Sammy Kuffour, Sulley Muntari, John Mensah and a host of others.
