Ian Wright banned from Manchester City
SWP’s dad can’t meet him at the school gates anymore
Manchester City chief exec Garry Cook has barred Ian Wright from Eastlands, after growing tired of the loudmouth pundit continually having a pop at the club.
According to the Mirror, Wright is claiming City have banned him from having any contact with the team, including having players appear on his Absolute radio talkshow.
The ex-Arsenal striker has regularly criticised City over Shaun Wright-Phillips’ protracted contract negotiations, claiming in March they were ‘mugging him off’ - by refusing to pay him any more than £60,000 p/w (*sigh*)
Wrighty has since had a go at Nigel de Jong about the Dutchman’s leg-breaking tackle on Hatem Ben Arfa, pilloried City over their treament of Craig Bellamy, and most recently questioned Roberto Mancini’s use of Carlos Tevez – all of which appears to have been too much for the City hierarchy to stomach.
