ABC News can report that former Black Stars forward, Manuel Junior Agogo, will be laid to rest on September 20 this year after an announcement by his family on Friday, September 13.

Information gathered by ABC News indicates that the family of the former Nottingham Forest and Zamalek player would have a gathering in his honour at the St. Mark’s Church in London after which he would be cremated.

Agogo died in London on August 22 at the age of 40 after suffering a health condition suspected to be stroke in 2015.

He showed signs of improvement two years later and was featured in a 2018 BBC documentary that focused on speech challenges that follow the onset of stroke.

He started his career with the Owls, playing three games for the then Premier League side between 1997 and 2000. He went on to score over 100 career goals, his most notable spell coming with Bristol Rovers, for whom Agogo scored 45 goals in 140 games between 2003 and 2006.

Agogo scored 12 times for the Black Stars and his late strike against Nigeria in the 2008 African Nations Cup quarter-finals is probably his most famous for the team.
