Around 7,500 Sheffield United fans paid tribute to former defender Ugo Ehiogu during their club's 3-0 victory over MK Dons yesterday.

Ehiogu, aged just 44, died last week after suffering a heart attack at the training ground of Tottenham Hotspur, where he was U23 coach.

Ehiogu made more than 400 career appearances, including 26 games for the Blades during the 2008/09 season. He also won four England caps in a career spanning 20 years.

And he was remembered at Stadium:mk yesterday as United fans chanted his name, before a minute of applause after 33 minutes - his squad number during his time at Bramall Lane.

United skipper Billy Sharp, whose brace against MK saw him pass the 200-goal mark in his career, played with Ehiogu at United and tweeted on Friday: Very sad news to hear my former team mate Ugo Ehiogu has passed away, such a lovely fella, condolences to all of his family."
