Ex-Aston Villa defender Jlloyd Samuel killed in vehicle crash

Former Aston Villa defender Samuel dies Jlloyd Samuel's family speak out after horror fireball crash kills ex-Prem star

Emergency services rushed to the scene on a country lane in High Legh, Cheshire, after his Range Rover collided with a van. The fire was too bad.

The ex-Trinidad & Tobago global also played for England U21s and youth team levels.

Police, fire engines and an air ambulance were called to the scene at 7.55am but Cheshire Police later confirmed in a statement that "the driver of the auto, Jlloyd Samuel, 37, from Lymm, died at the scene".

"His next of kin have been informed and are now being supported by specially trained officers".

The man who was driving the van was taken to hospital after sustaining serious injuries. "He represented Trinidad and Tobago on two occasions and on both occasions with distinction", John-Williams said.

He was capped by England from Under-18 to Under-21 level and was an unused substitute for the senior global against Sweden in 2004 before switching allegiances to the country of his birth.

Samuel played football in Iran in his later career, joining Esteghlal in 2011 - where he won the league and cup double - and Paykan in 2014.

After returning to England he became player-manager of Cheshire-based amateur team Egerton.

Manchester United star Ashley Young, who played with Samuel at Aston Villa, described him as "such a good guy on and off the pitch and a truly good friend".

"Jlloyd leaves behind a family including a wife and four children who are devastated by their sudden loss".

"The family at this time respectfully request to be left alone so they can have time to grieve and mourn his passing".

"Rest in peace, Jlloyd". Condolences to Emma, his kids and the Samuel family.
