With today’s desperate news that Ugo Ehiogu has died at 44 following a heart attack, the sport he served so well has been plunged into mourning.

Thoughts immediately go out to Ehiogu’s wife Gemma and his family and many friends, who have lost somebody very special, a wonderful man blessed with humility and humour, intelligence and principles.

Only 44. Ehiogu still had so much to give. He enjoyed a fine playing career, representing Aston Villa and Middlesbrough with particular distinction, winning two League Cups, as well as playing for England, and had been earning huge respect within the game as Tottenham Hotspur’s under-23 coach who really improved players through his sessions and astute man-management.

Ugo Ehiogu collapsed on Spurs training ground and was rushed to hospital.

Sadly he died aged just 44 this morning.

Awful news. I heard that he had been rushed to hospital after collapsing but didn't realise that it was this serious.

RIP Ugo, another one taken far, far too young.

I know nothing about him other than he was a decent player who has died with so much still to offer at only 44. Condolences to his wife and his son.

It took me 16 years to realise this was a passing game not a dribbling one (Jimmy Hill)

Stood out in my earliest memories because of his name, but ended up standing out as a colossal centre back.

He's one of those former PL players who just went about his business without any fuss. Seemed a really nice guy from what I've been reading - a proper gent.

Thoughts are with his family.

RIP Ugo, colossus of a centre back  

Would've played for England a lot more had he been playing in another era too IMO
