Family pays tribute to former Premier League footballer Jlloyd Samuel

Samuel was capped by England from Under-18 to Under-21 level and was an unused substitute for a senior worldwide against Sweden in 2004.

The 37-year-old was reportedly killed in a vehicle accident in England on Tuesday. He played two full global matches for Trinidad and Tobago in 2009.

He is reported to have died on Tuesday after dropping off his children in Cheshire.

Former Premier League football star, Jlloyd Samuel has died aged 37 in a horror crash which unfolded shortly after he had dropped his children off at school.

"Sadly 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".

Cheshire Police said the 54-year-old male van driver, from Chester, remains in a serious condition in hospital.

The TTFA said "the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association and his former national teammates at this time extends deepest condolences to his family members both in the United Kingdom and here in Trinidad and Tobago".

Samuel was born in the city of San Fernando in the south-west of Trinidad but moved to England as a youngster.

Jay-Lloyd Samuel in 2001 in the "Aston Villa" became the victor of the Intertoto Cup, in 2012 in the "Esteglal" Cup in Iran.

He spent the last four years of his professional career in the Iran Pro League, representing Esteghlal and Paykan.

Villa later confirmed their players will wear black armbands in Tuesday's Championship play-off semi-final second leg with Middlesbrough as a mark of respect for Samuel.
