Tottenham and Chelsea players will both wear black armbands at Wembley Stadium tomorrow as they pay their respects to Ugo Ehiogu.
The Tottenham Under-23 coach passed away early on Friday morning after suffering a cardiac arrest at the club’s training centre on Thursday.
There will also be a minute’s applause ahead of the FA Cup semi-final to celebrate the life of the U-23 coach and former England international.

Conte also paid tribute to the coach ahead of the semifinal clash, saying that at a time like this football isn’t important.
Conte said: “When this type of situation happens, football is not important. It is not easy to speak about this situation, because this situation hit everyone of us.
“Tomorrow there will be a strange atmosphere, it’s a pity because he is very young, only 44, a former player and when it happens you start to think a lot of things in your mind. For sure not good things, we are very sad for this. We can remember him tomorrow and that is the minimum for us, Tottenham and fans.”
