Mustafa Özat, Vice President of Turkish club Hatayaspor has given updates on two of their team members trapped under rubble following an earthquake in Turkey.

Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu and the club's sporting director, Taner Savut, are yet to be found after the apartment the team was living in was collapsed by a 7.7-magnitude earthquake.

The Hatayspor winger is reportedly trapped under rubble, along with the club's sporting director Taner Savut, who are all yet to be found after the earthquake.

Even though most affected individuals have been rescued, the magnitude 7.7 earthquake is expected to see an increased death toll of over 5,000 by the end of the day.

According to zat, the two persons are still under the rubble as a search team continuously went deeper.

"Cristian Atsu and Taner Savut are still under the rubble. We are trying to reach them," he said, as quoted by Turkish journalist Yagiz Saboncouglu.

The 31-year-old who scored to become the winner on Sunday night as Hatayaspor defeated Kasimpasa in the Turkish Super Lig in his third appearance joined the club after leaving Saudi Arabian club Al Raed last summer.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo, former President John Mahama, former Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kyeremateng, the Ghana Football Association, Accra Hearts of Oak and many others, in separate social media posts, have been praying for the player to be found safe and sound.
