Mr Agwunobi said:
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 20 years as a Consultant Surgeon and look forward to helping look after more patients as well as continuing to help train the surgeons of the future in the coming years. There have been some lows but mostly highs but I couldn’t have done it without the tremendous support from my colleagues and my family who have kept me grounded. And of course a huge thank you to my thousands of patients for placing your trust in me, it’s been a privilege to be on this journey with you all. Let’s hope in this my anniversary year that my beloved Man U does recapture the team’s magic again”.
