Former Black Stars player, Manuel “Junior” Agogo who captured the hearts of Ghanaians during the 2008 African Cup of Nations has opened up after he suffered a stroke five years ago.

According to the former Nottingham Forest and Zamalek striker, he can no longer write with his right hand after suffering a stroke in 2014.

In 2017, Agogo told the BBC Four documentary titled Speechless that he had troubles with speech following the illness which he says has left him lacking confidence and socially isolated.

Agogo is a Ghanaian former professional footballer who played as a striker. He was born in Ghana but spent most of his childhood in the UK.

He suffered the illness just two years after ending his football career and has been praised for his impressive recovery.

In 2017, Agogo told the BBC Four documentary titled Speechless that he had troubles with speech following the illness which he says has left him lacking confidence and has made him socially isolated.

According to the BBC, two years after his stroke, Agogo, 35, is still visiting the Neuro Rehab Unit of the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London’s Queen Square as he battles to find his way in the world with depleted language.

Agogo started his professional career with the Owls where he played three games for the then Premier League side between 1997 and 2000.

Agogo featured 27 times, scoring 12 goals in the national colours.
