The 31-year-old Artz used to play in the English Premier League (EPL). He started with Chelsea from 2013-2017, then went on to Everton and Newcastle. From September 2022, he was continuing his active life wearing the shirt of the Turkiye Professional Football 1st Division Super League club Hatayspor. He also played for the Ghanaian national team. He scored 10 goals in 60 career appearances.
Upon hearing the news that Artz was missing, the former team, Newcastle, put their hands together through the club’s social media account, saying, “I hope to hear positive news.”
The Ghana Football Association also said in a statement, “We are working to ensure the safety of Ghanaian players. We are trying to contact all Ghanaian footballers. We hope to hear good things from them.”
The Ghanaian media ‘Ganaweb’ said, “According to reports from Turkey and Ghana, we are still unable to contact Arts.”
At one point, news came that Arts had been rescued. Portuguese media ‘A Bola’ said, “Arts was found alive in a building in Hatay. She was hospitalized with a leg injury.”
However, Hatayspor club president refuted the report. According to the foreign press ‘GN24’, he said, “The information that Artz was found in the rubble after the earthquake is not true.”
