Ian Wright was never one of my favourite players. As a footballer, there was no doubting his ability – but as a man he has always been a bit annoying.

However, never one to hide his emotions, Ian Wright has written a damning report of the whole Ronadlo saga in a sort of open-letter to the Portuguese.

He writes in his column for ‘The Sun’:

‘As a player, there’s no doubt what you’re capable of. As a man, you’re not showing any class whatsoever.’

‘You’re also failing to show any respect to either Alex Ferguson or the Manchester United fans.’

‘To be honest, I’m embarrassed for you.’

‘You’re now 23 and you should not be acting quite so immature.’

‘You’ve been at Old Trafford for five years but it’s only the last two seasons you’ve set the place on fire.’

‘Previous to that, Fergie stuck with you. Despite your diving and despite the fact you would always try to take on a defender rather than pass to a team-mate. When you acted a right winker at the World Cup two years ago, your club manager once again showed extreme loyalty to you, along with United’s fans.’

‘They could have turned on you after your behaviour during the England match in Germany but they didn’t.’

‘You’ve now become one hell of a player – the best on this planet. I’d pay just to see you warm-up, let alone play a game.’

‘But with the drop of a hat, it seems you’re ready to join Real Madrid.’


Well, cant really argue there, can you.

Indeed, it seems that Ian Wright is Right!!!
