Ray Wilkins has died after suffering a heart attack

Sky Sports pundit Ray Wilkins has died after suffering a heart attack..

The former Chelsea coach was placed in an induced coma after having a cardiac arrest at his home in Surrey last Wednesday.

Wilkins, who’s professional career started in 1973 where he played for Chelsea for six years before joining Manchester United, is understood to have fallen and hit his head after his heart stopped.

He was taken to St George’s Hospital in Tooting, London. His wife said at the time: “He is not in a good state at all, I’m afraid. He’s critically ill.”

Since his playing career ended he had worked as a football coach and manager with Queens Park Rangers, Fulham, Chelsea and Jordan. He was most recently the assistant manager of Aston Villa.
