Spurs development coach Ehiogu in hospital after collapsing





The Tottenham Hotspur development coach Ugo Ehiogu who looks after our Under-21 team in Premier League 2 has collapsed at our training ground and been taken to hospital.

Naturally he received medical treatment from our team before being transferred to hospital by ambulance, Spurs have confirmed. Rumours are circulating that he has had a cardiac arrest, but I must stress these are unconfirmed. The Spurs statement though does indicate it is rather serious.

"Everyone at the club sends their best wishes to Ugo and his family."

The 44-year-old (45 in November) was a centre-back with a playing career spanning 20 years from from 1989 to 2009. Ehiogu worked with the England under-20 team and was part of Peter Taylor's coaching team at the U20 World Cup. Following a period working part-time with the our Academy, he was appointed Under-21 Team Coach as part of Tottenham Hotspur F.C. Academy in July 2014.

I'm sure all our fans wish him a speedy recovery.
