Christian Atsu’s wife Marie-Claire Rupio is left heartbroken after the announcement of the passing of her husband.
She was captured during Atsu’s former club, Newcastle premier league fixture against Liverpool crying profusely as tribute was paid.
Atsu, 31, spent time with Chelsea and Newcastle before moving to Saudi Arabia and then Turkey - and the Magpies hold a minute's silence this afternoon ahead of kick-off in tribute to their former star.
Who is Christian Atsu's wife?
Atsu met his wife Marie-Claire Rupio in Portugal nearly a decade ago when he was playing for Porto.
The pair got married in 2012 and welcomed three kids into their lives.
Atsu years back told Tv3 Sports: "I met my wife in Portugal and you can see we have a beautiful family. We've been together for nine to ten years and I just love her."
Christian Atsu has been tragically found dead 12 days after the Turkey earthquake, it has been confirmed.
The former Newcastle and Chelsea player was caught up in the devastating 7.8-magnitude quake that rocked Turkey and Syria on February 6, killing more than 43,000 people.
