Ugo Ehiogu’s last tweet sums up what a good guy he was



Ugo Ehiogu has passed away.

Ehigou suffered cardiac arrest on Thursday evening. The Tottenham Hotspur under-23 coach was taken to hospital from the club’s training ground, but passed away on Friday morning.

He was just 44-years-old.

Ehiogu’s career saw him play predominately for Aston Villa and Middlesbrough. He spent nine years with Villa, where he won the League Cup in 1996, before joining Middlesbrough in 2000, where he played for seven years, winning another League Cup in 2004.

The former defender also had spells with Leeds United, Rangers and Sheffield United before retiring in 2009.

Ehiogu won four England caps, and joined Spurs as a coach in 2014.

Ehigou’s last tweet before passing has come to people’s attention.

Many are trying to get #dosomethingkind trending on Twitter in honour of the late defender, who tweeted about his act of kindness towards a homeless person in London last month.

His passing has shocked the world of football, with many paying tribute to him on social media.
