Stephen Appiah, ex-player and former captain of the Black Stars has spoken about some good times he had with his former team mate and deceased striker, Manuel Junior Agogo.
According to the Stephen, he was hit so hard by the sudden death of the former Nottingham Forest striker, Junior Agogo. He did not believe it until he called Agogo’s brother in Accra who confirmed the sad news.
Speaking during an interview on Asempa FM, Stephen said; “When Ghana played Ivory coast in the 2008 third place game we went to Fiesta Royal; after that we went to a club at Labone called Monte Carlo.”
“When he came to the club everyone was caught in awe of Agogo and everything was a standstill. In Italian they call Emmanuel Manu so I used to affectionately call him Manu Manu”.
He added that Agogo told him about plans to visit Ghana next week for holidays.
“I have been talking to him and he promised to visit Ghana next week so I was surprised to hear of his death. All the players in camp at the 2008 AFCON used to love Agogo because he was a likeable man”.
Stephen took the opportunity to advice Ghanaians that because death is inevitable, everyone should be prepared for it.
