Ian Wright Arsenal

Arsenal marksman Ian Wright vowed to make premier league defenders pay for his world cup anguish. Defeat against the dutch signalled the end of England’s qualifying hopes and was also likely to end the international careers of many players including Wright, 29 who had already touted Newcastle striker Andy Cole as his replacement.

Ian Wright said “This is the most devastating blow of my career. It was my last ambition as I am certain I have a good chance of a premiership medal with Arsenal. I’ll just go back to my club and take out my frustration on premiership defenders. I will concentrate on scoring as many goals as possible for Arsenal now. May be it is time for me to step aside. Coley deserves a chance now. He has got a great future ahead of him and I don’t want to take up his place or stand in the way.”
