Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has been left devastated by the news of the death of Junior Agogo.

Agogo died on Thursday morning at a hospital in London.

The former Nottingham striker and Sheffield Wednesday was hospitalized in 2015 after suffering stroke which debilitated him.

He was remembered for his eye-catching performances for the Black Stars during the 2008 Nations Cup on home soil.

Gyan was part of Ghana's squad for that tournament and he tweeted: "Gutted..Thanks for the memories JUNIOR R.I.P bro"


Agogo scored 12 goals for Black Stars between 2006 and 2009.
