AFC Bournemouth and Middlesbrough to pay tribute to Ugo Ehiogu

Posted: Fri 21 Apr 2017

Approval has been given for tributes to be paid to Ugo Ehiogu during Saturday's game at Vitality Stadium

There will be a minute's applause and the players will wear black armbands during the Premier League match on Saturday.

Ehiogu died at the age of 44 after suffering a cardiac arrest at Tottenham Hotspur's training centre on Thursday, where the former defender was the under-23s coach.

Ehiogu made over 250 Premier League appearances, chiefly for Aston Villa and Saturday's away side Middlesbrough in a career that also saw him earn four England caps.

Everyone at AFC Bournemouth would like to send their condolences to the family and friends of Ehiogu at this difficult time.
