- Junior Agogo has opened up after he suffered a stroke five years ago
- He said he can longer write with his right hand
Former Black Stars player, Manuel Junior Agogo, has revealed that he is yet to use his right hand to write after suffering a stroke over four years ago.
YEN.com.gh has seen a video of the former Nottingham Forest and Zamalek striker claiming he has difficulty moving and controlling his right hand.
In the video, when asked whether he is able to use his right hand after the stroke, he answered:
"It's (right hand) better but it ain't like before," Agogo said in a slurred speech.
The former national star further revealed that, he is unable to use his right hand to write.
He said 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 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.
He won the hearts of Ghanaians during the 2008 AFCON which was staged in Ghana.
Agogo featured 27 times, scoring 12 goals in the national colours.
