Richard Kingson apologises to Junior Agogo on behalf of Black Stars

Junior Agogo has been battling with stroke for the past two years, but his former Black Stars teammates have left him to his own fate.

Agogo, 38 was hit by stroke upon retiring from active football in 2015 and has led to Aphasia which affects one’s ability to speak properly.

Junior Agogo revealed how his life has been devastated by the disease when he made appearance on BBC on Sunday as the world stroke day was marked.

The former Nottingham Forest striker was part of the Black Stars team that played in the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana and is remembered for his match winner against Nigeria in the quarter finals.

However, he has been neglected by his former Black Stars teammates, the technical team and the Ghana Football Association in this difficult moment of his life.

Richard Kingston who heard the news after Agogo had appeared on BBC has apologised to his former teammate on behalf of the Black Stars for abandoning him.
