The thoughts of everyone at Show Racism the Red Card go out to the family and friends of Ugo Ehiogu following the shock announcement of his death this morning.
Ugo attended a number of anti-racism education events with Show Racism the Red Card during his time with Middlesbrough FC and Sheffield United FC; acting as a brilliant role model for the young people present and giving them the unique opportunity to ask questions and listen to his experiences of racism and his advice to them about what they should do if they are ever the target of prejudice or discrimination.
All of those who spent time with Ugo have only the most positive things to say about him, and that was certainly the experience of the organisation whenever he interacted with the campaign. Everyone connected with Show Racism the Red Card is deeply saddened by the news of his tragic death.
Rest in peace Ugo.
