Manuel Junior Agogo, a famous ex-striker of Ghana Black Stars has been reported dead at age 40.
The deceased’s fame heightened during the 2008 African Cup of Nations tournament which was hosted by Ghana. He was born in Ghana but spent most of his childhood in the UK. He then moved back to Ghana during his years in secondary school. He began his youth career at Sheffield Wednesday in 1995, moving up to the senior squad in 1997.
He played for fifteen different clubs over the next fifteen years, before retiring from professional football in 2012. He spent most of his playing career in England, with additional spells in the USA, Egypt, Cyprus and Scotland. His longest spell was at Bristol Rovers (2003–06), where he made 140 appearances before moving to Nottingham Forest.
Since the announcement of his demise, some Twitter users have taken to Twitter to express their commiserations.
