Wright admits he’d love Arsenal return – but says Wenger doesn’t want his help

Date Posted,April 12, 2017

Ian Wright has admitted he would love to return to Arsenal – but doesn’t think Arsene Wenger would want him at the club.

The Frenchman’s future remains the source of much speculation after a run of woeful results that has seen Arsenal lose five of their last eight.

They sit sixth in the Premier League table with fans turning against their beleaguered boss.

Despite the poor run of results, Wenger is expected to sign a new deal at the Emirates in the summer.

Gunners legend Wright says he would relish the opportunity to help the club “in any capacity” but believes he is too outspoken for Wenger.

“No-one around Arsene Wenger can front him up and say ‘you’re wrong,”, he has got people around him that he loves,” Wright said.

“Martin Keown is the only one that’s fronted him in the last couple of years and he got him out.”
