Ajax forward Mohammed Kudus honoured the passing of fellow Ghanaian countryman Christian Atsu who died in the Turkey earthquake by revealing a message underneath his playing shirt after scoring for his club on Sunday.


Kudus celebrated by paying his respects to Atsu and marked the moment with the symbolic gesture of removing his shirt inside the Johan Cryuff Arena as team-mates consoled him.


Underneath his red and white playing top, the 22-year-old revealed an undershirt message ‘R.I.P Atsu’ written on it.
