Ugo Ehiogu (born October 6, 1972) is an English association football player.

Ugo Ehiogu is an English international defender, who currently plays for English Premiership football team Middlesbrough. He joined Middlesbrough from English club Aston Villa in November 2000 for, at the time, a club record fee of 8 million pounds. His career at Middlesbrough got off on the wrong foot when he was forced to limp off 4 minutes into his debut with a hamstring injury which kept him out for months. It wouldn't be harsh to say that Ehiogu is injruy prone, and has a history of muscle pulls. He won the League Cup twice at Villa under manager Brian Little and was called up for his first England international game in 1996 against Italy.

Ugo has fast become a mainstay of the Middlesbrough central defence since joining the club and rejoining his former team mate Gareth Southgate. He missed the start of the 2003-04 season with a knee injury but returned to play his part in Boro's Carling Cup success against Bolton Wanderers. This knee injury returned in the 2004-05 season and again he was forced to miss many important games. In total Ugo has been capped 4 times for England scoring once in a 3-0 victory over Spain. In the derby match against Sunderland he had to limp off with a groin injury which has seen him ruled out for the forseeable future.

Ugos recent performances have made him unpopular with the Middlesbrough supporters, and he has earned himself the nickname 'Boogo Ehiogu'.
