Atsu ignoring speculations about future

Ghana World Cup star Christian Atsu says he is ignoring all the talk about his future and concentrating on helping the Black Stars prolong their stay in Brazil.

Atsu has been impressive at the tournament so far and has been tipped to earn a place at his parent club Chelsea

He spent last on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem but he is unlikely to be looked at by Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

Atsu has distanced himself from those reports while he concentrates of on the task ahead at the World Cup.

“I am concentrating on the world cup and my aim is to help the team make the knock out stages,” Atsu said.

“What happens to by future after the world cup will be decided at the right time”.

The Black Stars face a must win match against Portugal on Thursday in Brasilia.

Ghana lost 2-1 to the U.S in the opening group game and were unlucky not to take all three points against Germany in the second game.
