Ugo Ehiogu’s last tweet is everything you need to know about England defender

The footballing community woke to up the shocking and sad news of Tottenham Hotspur's U23 coach Ugo Ehiogu untimely death at the age of 44. This comes a day after a report claimed that he suffered a cardiac arrest at Tottenham's training centre on Thursday. Ugo spent successful spells at  Aston Villa and Middlesbrough in the 90's before in stints in the Football League for West Bromwich Albion, Leeds United and Sheffield United. 

"Words cannot express the shock and sadness that we all feel at the club," said Tottenham's head of coaching and development John McDermott.

"Ugo's immense presence will be irreplaceable."

Such was the aura behind one of football's genuinely good men. And as fate would have it, Ugo's last tweet summed up perfectly the kind of person he was.
