Ian Wright believes that Manchester United fans should show a lot of patience with Paul Pogba and he has likened the situation faced by the Frenchman to that of Mesut Ozil after the German’s move from Real Madrid.
Ozil came with a huge reputation, and a huge transfer fee as well, from Madrid.
After an initial flurry of performances, the German struggled throughout the campaign with many criticising the transfer fee and the quality of the player. Since then, he has come good and has been responsible for Arsenal lifting two FA Cup titles.
Pogba came to Manchester United for a world record transfer fee of £89 million, almost twice that of Mesut Ozil, and he has been criticised for his lack of any impact in the team in recent games. United manager Jose Mourinho has called for pundits and fans to show patience with the midfielder since he still has to settle at the club Read more »
Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright believes that it is time for Calum Chambers to look at opportunities elsewhere after not being in the first choice starting line-up under Arsene Wenger for the 2016-17 season.
The former Southampton defender was brought to the club in the summer of 2014 for a fee of around £ 14 million. However, his presence at Arsenal has coincided with a problematic time in terms of injuries. As a result, Wenger has had to dig deep into the squad of players
and many of them have had to play in a number of positions.
Chambers is widely seen as a player who was badly affected as a result of being played in a number of positions across the back four. After making 36 appearances in all competitions in his first season at the club, the 21-year-old went on to make only 22 appearances last season. This included a run of just 12 games in the Premier League, which seemed to suggest that Wenger had lost faith in the player. Even though the player still has age on his side, it became clear that Wenger does not fancy him anymore when the club signed Rob Holding from Bolton Wanderers in the summer for just £ 2 million.

Former star of Arsenal, Ian Wright did not hold anything back when talking about Chelsea’s Eden Hazard as the pundit stated that the Belgian player is a world-class player who has recently gone through an extremely disappointing season which has seen him scoring only 3 goals and providing 3 assists from 28 league appearances.
In the previous season of the Premier League, Eden Hazard was named Chelsea’s Player of the Year. He was awarded with this individual award after managing to score 14 goals and 9 assists during the 2014-15 season of the English League.
This sudden drop of form from Eden Hazard has also been displayed by the majority of the Chelsea members but it’s been more evident with the Belgian player as he is one of the main figures of the Premier League club and without him, the team clearly does not function.
As a pundit, Ian Wright is up to date with everything that is going on in the world of football and he recently talked about the underwhelming season of Eden Hazard. Wright praised Eden Hazard by saying that the Belgian player is a world-class player but that he should be ashamed by what has been a disgrace of a season.

Former professional English player and football commentator, Ian Wright says former player, Thierry Henry will be the perfect replacement for The Gunners. Wright who played for seven years for the English team backs the Frenchman to head the coaching crew at the emirates.
Thierry Henry just completed his UEFA coaching badges and Ian Wright says he is the one to replace Arsene Wenger when he finally retires from the club.
“Thierry has got his badges, jump in, jump in. If you can’t get a Pep, which we can’t – Arsenal fans wouldn’t want Mourinho for whatever reason – if Thierry is ready to go and he can get the backroom staff, get it done,” Wright said. The leading goal scorer for Arsenal received his UEFA ‘A’ coaching badge last month. This means the former skipper can lead the coaching crew below EPL level or a youth team.
The television and radio personality also commented on other issues. He asked that Louis Van Gaal believe more in the youth in his Manchester united squad. He said if he were at the helms of affairs at the club, he would drop Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo. Ian said he favored youngsters, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson due to their style of play and contribution to the team. Read more »
