Christian Atsu Named In Newcastle Squad For Upcoming Season; Retains No.30 Shirt
LISTEN SEP 9, 2020

Ghana international Christian Atsu is set to keep his Number 30 jersey at Newcastle United next season after being named in the team’s squad for the 2020/2021 football season.

The forward failed to play in as many matches last season with most of his appearances coming as a second-half substitute.

Despite widespread speculation over a potential move away from Newcastle United this summer, Christian Atsu looks set to stay on.

He has been named in the team’s squad for the upcoming football season in England and will be part of a team that has depth in terms of attacking players.

Check out Atsu’s stats from last season as provided by Modernghana Sports statistics partners, SofaScore below:
