LUFC Ugo Ehiogu Dies Aged 44

LUFC Ugo Ehiogu Dies Aged 44

Former Leeds United defender Ugo Ehiogu has sadly died at the age of 44.

Ehiogu was rushed to hospital on Thursday after collapsing at the Tottenham Hotspur training ground, where he coached their under 23 team.

Tottenham announced on Friday morning that Ehiogu had died after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Ehiogu spent a month on loan at Elland Road from Middlesbrough in the winter of 2006, making six appearances for the club and he scored in the 2-2 draw against Barnsley.

He will be best remembered for his spell with Aston Villa, where he made over 300 appearances in nine-years at Villa Park.

The no-nonsense defender went on to play for Middlesbrough, Leeds, Glasgow Rangers and Sheffield United and he was capped by England before moving into coaching at the end of his playing career.

Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Ehiogu at this sad time.

RIP Ugo Ehiogu

Awful news. I know he only spent a month with us but he impressed. I always enjoyed watching him play during his career. A big strong defender who was always a consistent performer. Always comes as a shock when you see someone at a relatively young age, who was a fit athlete all his life dieing at such a young age. RIP Ugo.
