A video has surfaced online which shows Junior Agogo narrating the sad ordeal he faced with battling stroke. (Video below)
As OccupyGh.com reported earlier, the former Ghana BlackStars player has passed on in London on Thursday, 22nd August, 2019.
In a video we stumbled on, the former Nottingham Forest and Zamalek striker said he had difficulty moving and controlling his right hand.
“It’s (right hand) better but it ain’t like before,” Agogo slurred with his speech.
According to Agogo, he spent two months in the hospital after suffering the debilitating illness on December 8, 2014. 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 socially isolated.
According to the BBC, two years after his stroke when just 35 years old, Agogo 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.
The Ghanaian soccers-tar began his career with the Owls, playing three games for the then Premier League side between 1997 and 2000.
