Arsenal send Twitter message to Tottenham senior man
By Harvey Byrne
Arsenal have put their rivalry behind them on Twitter after sending their best wishes to Tottenham senior man Ugo Ehiogu.
Spurs announced on their official Twitter account on Thursday afternoon that the 44-year-old had been taken to hospital after collapsing at their training ground earlier in the day.
The club did not reveal what caused the Tottenham Under-23s coach to collapse, but naturally many have been quick to send their well wishes to the former Premier League defender.
Of these included north London rivals Arsenal, who shared via their own official Twitter account that they hope for a full recovery for Ehiogu as well as giving their thoughts to his family.
All of us at Arsenal hope Ugo makes a full recovery – our thoughts are with him and his family

Ehiogu has been working with the Tottenham youth team since 2014 after a short spell working part-time at the club’s academy.

The Under-23s are currently sat in sixth place in this season’s Premier League 2, which includes a number of young stars such as Josh Onomah and Marcus Edwards.
It is now likely that the Spurs youngsters will see out the rest of their campaign without Ehiogu, who is expected to need time to recover.
The former England international is well respected in football and featured for some reputable clubs during his playing career such as Aston Villa, Leeds and Rangers.
