Previous Clubs: Crystal Palace (England), Arsenal (England)


Exceptional goalscorer with temperament of prima donna. Can score from anywhere and running off the ball gives defenders nightmares. Wright became the most prolific Arsenal goalscorer of all time when he broke George Bastin's record of 178 goals last season. Capped 31 times for England, the player would almost certainly have been in Glenn Hoddle's England World Cup squad had he not had a hamstring injury. His volatile temper often lands him in trouble and has cost him huge amounts in fines and suspensions. A superb, intuitive player with a back catalogue of great goals to his credit. Immensely popular with fans and team mates.
