Family and friends gathered to mourn the passing of former defender and coach Ugo Ehiogu at his funeral on Wednesday.
The funeral service took place in Highgate on Wednesday and was attended by former footballers including Ledley King, Dwight Yorke and Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink. PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor was also seen at the service.
Ehiogu, 44, forged a successful career as a youth coach with Tottenham after hanging his boots in 2009.
Ugo collapsed at Spurs’ training ground after suffering a cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead a day later on April 21, leaving behind his wife Gemma and two children.\
Ehiogu made over 200 appearances for Aston Villa between 1991 and 2000 before joining Middlesbrough, where he spent seven years.
He won the League Cup with Villa in 1994 and 1996, and then again with Middlesbrough in 2004.
The centre-back also played for West Brom, Leeds, Rangers and Sheffield United, before retiring in 2009. He began coaching at Tottenham in 2014.
In his final tweet on March 29, Ehiogu revealed he had given a homeless girl money in London and discussed how the impulsive act left him feeling good.
