“Rest in peace, Christian Atsu. Your talent on the pitch and your kind heart off the pitch will always be remembered. You will be missed.”, Sheyi wrote.

Already close thanks to the good relationship between Togolese and their neighbours from Ghana, Atsu and Adebayor got to know each other better during their days in the English Premier League.
