Samuel also played for England at youth level, featuring for the Under-18, Under-20 and Under-21 teams, but pledged his global allegiance to Trinidad, winning two caps.

The ex-Aston Villa, Bolton and Cardiff defender was involved in the smash moments after dropping his children off at school at around 8am yesterday.

In a statement issued on Wednesday via Cheshire Police, the father-of-four's family said: "Jlloyd was a loving son, father, husband and brother".

Villa have confirmed they will wear black armbands during the second leg of their Championship play-off semi-final against Middlesbrough on Tuesday.

Nikkhil Advani added that John Abraham perfectly suits for the role of Sanjeev Kumar Yadav and he pulls of the role very easily. The film will tell the story of one most-talked about police operations in the recent times, i.e the encounter at L-Batla House.


Samuel was born in Trinidad before moving to England where he represented London Schoolboys teams.

"Took me under his wing when I joined Villa and helped me settle".

It posted on Twitter: "Our players will wear black armbands as a mark of respect tonight and our thoughts are with his friends and family at this very hard time". Condolences to Emma, his kids and the Samuel family.

Bolton Wanders FC also posted to Twitter, saying: "Rest in peace, Jlloyd".

"He was extremely popular and well-loved by all who were fortunate to know him".
