Former Aston Villa and Middlesbrough defender Ugo Ehiogu has been appointed as Tottenham Hotspur’s new Under-21s coach.

The 41-year-old former centre-back had been coaching within the club’s academy structure on a part-time basis but will now step up to lead the Under-21 side.

Ehiogu, who won four England caps between 1996 and 2002, will be assisted by former Spurs academy player, Matthew Wells.

Born in Homerton, Ehiogu retired from football in 2012 following a short spell with Wembley FC after agreeing to play in the club’s FA Cup matches, along with a number of other high-profile ex-professionals.

The appointment of Ehiogu as the Under-21 coach follows the news Ledley King has taken up a coaching role with the club’s Under-18 side.

Never mind coaching, with immediate effect King and Ehiogu should be sent to scour the country looking for an exact copy of themselves at the age of 21. The club is screaming out for a dominant centre back to build the defence around.
PS If you find someone Ledley.......check his knees.
