Chelsea player on loan at Malaga, Christian Atsu is set for his Spanish La Liga debut this weekend
Ghana international Christian Atsu is set to make his debut in the Spanish La Liga on Saturday after Malaga coach Javi Gracia named the player in his squad for the Eibar game.
The Black Stars winger completed a loan transfer move from English Premier League Champions Chelsea to the Spanish club in the week and is set for a debut this weekend.
Atsu has struggled with recent loans spells and will hope to emulate his form at former club FC Porto and Vitesse at his new Malaga side. The Ghanaian who joined Chelsea in 2013 spent last season on loan at Everton. The player however did not get enough playing time to aid his development in a bid to break into the Chelsea first team.
The Ghanaian star then switched clubs to AFC Bournemouth this season but was hampered by injuries and lack of games for the first half of the season. Chelsea ended the loan spell midway through the season before Atsu completed a move to Spain.
Malaga team to play Eibar: Kameni, Albentosa, Chory Castro, Camacho, Charles, Horta, Atsu, Tissone, Ochoa, Recio, Rosales, Boka, Cop, Filipenko, Miguel Torres, Santa Cruz, Juanpi and Pablo.Follow @kboakye92
