Jerseys worn by Chelsea players during their match against Everton will be auctioned off to raise funds for the completion of Atsu’s school.

To support the construction of the school that was being built by the late Christian Atsu in Ghana, Chelsea FC has declared that they will be auctioning off the jerseys worn by their players during the match against Everton. The funds raised from the auction will be used to complete the school project.

Atsu remained on the Chelsea roster for five years, but during that time he never had the opportunity to play for the first-team before switching to Everton

Following the 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, a statement was released by Chelsea announcing that they have put up the players’ jerseys and other items for auction. The proceeds from the auction will be used to finance the completion of the school that was initiated by Atsu

Chelsea announced that the funds raised from the auction, which features signed shirts from the entire squad and various items from club legends, will go towards Arms Around the Child, a charity for which Christian was an ambassador, and the completion of the school they had started building in his native Ghana. The auction will continue until 2 pm on 8 April.

In addition, Cesar Azpilicueta, the captain of Chelsea, expressed his thoughts on the initiative, stating that it provides an opportunity for them to honor the memory of Christian, who was a well-liked individual within the club and is deeply missed

During the time we spent with Christian, we were able to witness his remarkable personality, and any contribution made to the shirt auction will provide essential support for the lasting legacy that he has left behind.

Atsu was confirmed dead on Saturday, February 18, 2023, after his lifeless 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 in mid-February.

The ex-Chelsea and Newcastle United winger was laid to rest on Friday, March 17, 2022, in his hometown in Ada
