Paul Merson gets plenty of stick for his punditry on Soccer Saturday, but one thing you could never accuse him of is lacking emotion.
Merson was fulfilling his usual media duties on Sky Sports News when the subject of Ugo Ehiogu’s death came up.
The pair were team-mates at Aston Villa between 1998 and 2000.
A clearly emotional Merson paid a touching tribute to Ehiogu, echoing the sentiments of everyone who came across him.
