​Mason dedicates first Tottenham win to Ugo Ehiogu

Tottenham interim boss Ryan Mason dedicated his first win to former coach Ugo Ehiogu.

The 44-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest at Spurs' training ground where he was working as an under-23s coach.

Mason worked with Ehiogu while he was coming through the ranks at the club, and even held the same coaching position with the under-23s recently.

Spurs defeated Southampton 2-1 in the first game after Jose Mourinho's sacking.

"I want to dedicate that one to him and his family, he was a great man," Mason told Sky Sports after the game.

"Everyone within the club still remembers him."
