A video of Junior Agogo revealing how his friends and team mates abandoned him when he needed them most has popped up.
He was speaking in an interview in a video titled Speechless and sighted by YEN.com.gh.
In the video, the BBC interviewer had visited Agogo in his home for the interview.
He was taking to the BBC representative around and showing him some jerseys of his friends.
YEN.com.gh sighted those of Michael Essien and Samuel E’too.
The BBC man then asked “Do you meet them [your friends and team mates] now", to which Agogo responded no.
“They all used to come around, we meet, but now nobody gets in touch with me after the stroke,” Agogo said and let out soft laughter.
Though he laughed, the man must have felt betrayed over the behaviour of his friends.
What could even cause him more sadness was that he still had their jerseys displayed in his room.
He was later seen sitting quietly, obviously to reminisce the good times he had with those friends but they turned their backs on him during such a crucial period in his life.
Meanwhile, there have been many tributes pouring out since Agogo died.
Asamoah Gyan, for instance, has described him as a brother with whom he had many memories.
YEN.com.gh has also published the last trying moments of Agogo, showing how he suffered before his death.
We also published his last speech “Ride or die”, just a week to his death.
YEN.com.gh has also published Agogo’s detailed biography telling how he started his young life, career, right to his death.
Again, a report of some facts and factors that may have contributed to Agogo’s death have also been published.
