Former Ghana Blackstars Captain Stephen Appiah says he was shocked to hear about the sudden death of his colleague player Junior Agogo.
He revealed that he has been in contact with Agogo and that he even planned visiting Ghana next week.
Stephen revealed that he was shocked to the extent that he had to call Agogo’s brother to be sure that his death was indeed true.
Speaking on Asempa Fm Tornado said Agogo’s favourite song was a funky tune titled fish go deep the cure and cause.
“When Ghana played Ivory coast in the 2008 third place game we went to Fiesta Royal and 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”
“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”he said.
He advised Ghanaians that death is inevitable and could come anytime so everyone should be prepared for it as it can come unannounced.
Appiah who now serves as a technical coordinator for the Black Stars says that Manuel Agogo had a short stint with the national team but was hugely popular and likeable.
