Former Aston Villa defender Ugo Ehiogu passes away at 44

22 April 2017, 12:44 | Andy Ferguson

The Nigerian born, former premier league defender suffered a cardiac arrest on Thursday at the training grounds of Tottenham Hotspurs, where he coaches the U23 team.

Ehiogu won the third of his League Cup medals with Boro, who visit Vitality Stadium for a Premier League clash tomorrow.

Capped four times by England, he also played for Leeds, Rangers and Sheffield United before retiring in 2009.

Ugo Ehiogu's death at age of 44 prompted tributes from all over the football world as former team-mate Paul Merson broke down in tears and said "only the good die young".

Rio Ferdinand, who played with Ehiogu for England, paid tribute to a "calm and warming" man.

"I've spoken to several of our former teammates today and there's just a sense of disbelief that we're having these conversations".

After moving into coaching following his retirement, Ehiogu was part of Peter Taylor's England Under-20 coaching set-up, before taking up a role with the Tottenham academy in July 2014.

Respected figure: Ugo Ehiogu in Aston Villa colours. "Ugo's presence will be irreplaceable. I learned a lot from him". "Our thoughts go out to Ugo's friends and family".

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte, whose side play Tottenham in an FA Cup semi-final on Saturday, expressed his condolences and those of his players and club to Ehiogu's family.

Tributes are pouring in for him, as he is widely beloved.

Villa will hold a minute's applause before their second-tier League Championship match against Birmingham on Sunday, with both sets of players to wear black armbands.

Ron Atkinson was one of Ehiogu's biggest champions and can regard the £40,000 it took to take the teenager from West Bromwich Albion to Aston Villa in August 1991 as one of his most astute moves in the market.

Ex-England defender Sol Campbell‏ described Ehiogu as "one of my East London mates of old" and "a true defender".

Villa reacted to the news on Twitter.

"I'm stunned and deeply saddened by Ugo's passing and clearly my initial thoughts are with his wife Gemma, his children and his family", he said. "I looked at pictures at home this morning and Ugo is in them celebrating".

This study corroborated earlier research, conducted with a cohort of former British Olympic endurance athletes, that also found a link between lifelong endurance exercise and heart scarring.
