Former England defender, Ehiogu dies

Ex Britain and Aston Villa defender Ugo Ehiogu on Friday kicked the bucket at 44 years old, after suffering a heart failure at Tottenham's training pitch a day prior. 

The news of Ehiogu's demise was affirmed by his former in an announcement. 

As indicated by John McDermott, Tottenham's Head of Training and Advancement, Ehiogu kicked the bucket at the hospital facility in the early hours of Friday. 

"Ehiogu, who was Spurs’ Under-23s coach, was capped four times by England. Ehiogu's immense presence will be fundamental. 

"Words can't express the stun and trouble that we we all feel at the club ," McDermott included. 

Ehiogu made over 200 appearances for Aston Villa between 1991 and 2000 and after that put in seven years at Middlesbrough. 

He won the League Cup with Villa in 1994 and 1996, and furthermore with Boro in 2004. 

The  centre-back additionally played for West Brom, Leeds, Rangers and Sheffield United, before resigning in 2009. 

Ehiogu started coaching at Tottenham in 2014 and was a co founder of music labell Dirty Hit, which has English non mainstream band The 1975 on its books. 

He wedded his wife, Gemma, in 2005 and had two kids — son Obi Jackson and girl Jodie. 

Villa will hold a moment's acclaim before their Title clash against Birmingham City on Sunday, with both arrangements of players to wear dark armbands.
