The woman revealed that she was financially struggling at the time because she was taking care of the expensive hospital bills of her baby alone, as the child's father had left her.
"I was in a tight spot financially because my husband had left me with my newborn baby, so I was even struggling to make enough money to make ends meet. Atsu gave me 250 Euros every two weeks for 3 years, making a total of 19,500 Euros and then assisted me in going to school in order to get my passport," she said.
Aside from that, the lady added that Atsu gave her 800 euros to process her Portuguese passport and also added 2,000 euros when he was leaving Portugal.
"He asked me to meet him near a stadium where he gave me 800 euros for my Portuguese passport. This happened in 2013. He also gave me 2,000 euros when it was time for him to leave Porto for Chelsea," she recounted.
