Taner Savut, the sporting director of Hatayspor, who was trapped under the rubble alongside Christian Atsu, has been confirmed as dead after his lifeless body was retrieved.

Atsu was confirmed dead last Saturday after his body was pulled out of the rubble in the wake of the earthquake in Turkey.

This followed days of intense search following the devastating earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria two weeks ago.

On Tuesday, February 21, Hatayspor released a statement announcing that Sporting Director Savut has also been found dead.

“We feel the deep sorrow of losing our Sporting Director Taner Savut. We will not forget you teacher Taner. Rest in heaven. You are always in our hearts,” the Turkish club wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, on Monday, Abedi Ayew Pele and his family visited the bereaved family and even donated some items to them.

More ex-players also went to their deceased colleague’s family home on Tuesday to commiserate with them.
