Justin Edinburgh’s son has taken to Twitter to post an emotional tribute to his late father.
Edinburgh, who guided Leyton Orient back into League Two this season, had been taken to hospital on Monday after suffering a cardiac arrest. He sadly died five days later in hospital and is survived by his wife Kerri, son Charlie and daughter Cydney.
The 49-year-old had only just returned from a trip to watch his beloved Spurs playing in the Champions League final in Madrid where they lost 2-0 to Liverpool. Edinburgh was in fine form on the trip while on stage at the fan zone, mixing with supporters and singing songs with his fellow legends.
The former left-back spent a decade playing for Tottenham Hotspur, making 258 appearances and winning the FA Cup in 1991 and League Cup in 1999 before moving to Portsmouth.
Charlie called his father “my best friend, my hero” in a tribute tweet.
My Best Friend, My Hero and Best Dad you could ever ask for. You made all of my dreams come true and shaped me into the man I am today. I will look after the girls. Love you Big Man see you soon. So Proud ? https://t.co/d1BQ412FBh
