The sports journalist claimed that Christian Atsu gave him the money before leaving, adding that it was their final in-person encounter.

''He got hurt before the 2019 AFCON, so I went to him and pleaded with him to continue with the squad if his recuperation time was short so he could play if the team advanced out of the group stage.
''He came to my room and told me he had to go since the scan didn't seem good. He gave me $400 and a jersey. It was the final time I spoke to him directly. Since then, maybe WhatsApp,'' he recalled, per Ghanaweb.
