Hatayspor Sporting Director body found dead, days after teammate Christian Atsu


The body of Hatayspor’s Sporting Director, Taner Savut, was found on Tuesday, more than two weeks after two devastating earthquakes struck in Turkey and Syria.

Savut had been missing since February 6, and his body was found close to where Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu, of the same club, was discovered last week.

Atsu was confirmed dead on Saturday with his remains being flown to his family on Sunday with the help of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Internal Relations.

However, days after the death of the Ghanaian was confirmed, Hatayspor have also announced they have seen the lifeless body of the club’s Sporting Director.

“We feel the deep sorrow of losing our Sporting Director Taner Savut,” Turkish side Hatayspor said on Twitter on Tuesday.

“We will not forget you teacher Taner. Rest in heaven. You are always in our hearts.”

More than 47,000 people have died in the disaster so far.
