#RIPAtsu: Let This Be A Reform Of Mindset And A Change Of Attitude – Sonnie Badu To GFA

Renowned UK-based Ghanaian gospel singer, Sonnie Badu has asked the GFA to let the death of Christian Atsu bring reforms to Ghana's football.

In a Facebook post today, said: “Dear GFA @chris_atsu has been finally laid to rest. However, let me say this.. Let this be a reform of mindset and a change of attitude…. I know our @ghana_fa_official chairman will do things differently

“I heard in recent interviews people saying that he was the Messi of Ghana… Well you guys retired him quick - whiles Messi is still playing the World Cup… Messi is 35 and Astu was 31 …Let us learn how to make players feel important while they are alive. We should not wait for something to happen to them before we take over their funeral expenses and all of that.

“We know that, most of the players get injured during international duties And it is to no surprise, that they end up losing their position, in their club teams and also national teams…. That’s why players like @thomaspartey5 would rather put their 💯 in club rather than national teams…

“I heard the tribute read from the club, he told the coach he either plays or goes to see his family.. if one could only turn back time .. it shows how committed he was to his career …champ you died a hero and you scored your last goal … it cannot be forgotten by the club…… rest well .. your send off was beautiful…,” he said.
