Where is Ugo Ehiogu now?

Premier League legend Ugo Ehiogu retired from playing professionally in 2009 after his contract was terminated by Sheffield United in a bid to cut costs.

Making over 400 first-team appearances over a 20-year period, Ehiogu spent most of his career at Aston Villa and Middlesbrough and was a League Cup winner at both sides.

He also represented the England national side on four occasions scoring one goal.

In 2012 Ehiogu made a brief playing comeback with Wembley FC as part of their well publicised FA Cup run attempt. He only played one game after they got knocked out in the preliminary rounds.

A year later he had his first taste of football coaching when he joined up with the England under 20’s coaching set up for the 2013 Under-20 World Cup Finals.

Whilst studying for his UEFA coaching licence, he was invited to work at Tottenham Hotspur as assistant coach of their academy under 16’s team and upon completing his A licence in 2015 he was promoted to coach of their under 21’s side.

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.

He was only 44 years of age when he died.
