The Al-Raed forward is currently on holiday after a testing season in the Saudi Arabian league with his club.
Christian Atsu: Ghana winger shares beach photos from his off-season vacation
Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu has been having a great time out there if his social media posts are anything to go by.
In a post on social media, Atsu shared photos of himself at the beach having fun and holding a water skating board.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played for the national team for some time now and was once again left out of the squad for the 2023 AFCON qualifiers in June.
He recently stirred controversy on Twitter after tweeting about the Finalissima between Argentina and Italy while Ghana’s game against Madagascar was ongoing.
The Al-Raed winger is known to be a big fan of Lionel Messi and, therefore, extended his support to the PSG superstar and his national team.
Atsu made a short post on Twitter, where he mentioned Argentina and accompanied the post with the love emoji.
The said post was made at the same time Ghana was playing against Madagascar in their opening group game of the AFCON qualifiers, and that did not sit well with some of the fans.
Atsu, however, went on to tweet about the Black Stars’ game in his subsequent posts, saying “Come on, Ghana.”
It appeared the winger was watching both matches, hence he continued tweeting about the Argentina vs Italy game and Ghana’s match as well.
That, though, did not stop some fans from criticising him over his decision to tweet about Argentina when the Black Stars were also playing at the same time.
Atsu joined Al-Raed in 2021 after parting ways with Premier League side Newcastle United following a five-year spell with the Magpies.
