Where is Ugo Ehiogu now?

Whilst studying for his UEFA coaching licence, Ehiogu was invited to work with the youth teams at Tottenham Hotspur as assistant coach of their academy under 16’s team.

In July 2014 Ugo Ehiogu was promoted to coach of the Tottenham Hotspur under 21’s side and in 2015 he completed his UEFA A coaching badges.

Ehiogu, along with two other investors also had an interest in record label “Dirty Hit” which has many promising musicians including The 1975.

On the 20th April 2017, Ehiogu collapsed suddenly at the Tottenham Hotspur training ground after suffering a cardiac arrest and tragically died in the early hours the following day.

Ehiogu was only 44 years of age when he died.

Following the sacking of Harry Redknapp from Birmingham City in September 2017, online bookmakers Paddy Power mistakenly offered odds of 66-1 for Ehiogu to take over as the new manager.

The company later apologised for the error pointing out that it was a genuine mistake.
