Tottenham caretaker boss Mason dedicates victory over Southampton to Ehiogu

Tottenham caretaker boss Ryan Mason dedicated victory over Southampton last night to Ugo Ehiogu.

He passed away four years ago yesterday.

Ehiogu, aged just 44, suffered a cardiac arrest at Tottenham training ground, where we worked as Under-23s coach.

Mason, who held the same position before being promoted to first-team duties, worked with Ehiogu while coming through the ranks as a Spurs player.

"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."
