Former striker and a Gooner through & through, Ian Wright could do nothing but admire as the Arsenal legend attended an event at Spurs’ brand spanking new stadium yesterday.
Appearing on behalf of Football Beyond Borders, an educational charity for underprivileged youth, Wright took some time interacting with budding footballers before taking a look around in the massive arena.
Even as an Arsenal man, he had to admit that it was absolutely “magnificent”.
Three grudging admiration was justified, considering he was given a view of the beautiful stadium when it was fully lit at night.
The man was, of course having a hard time admitting that Spurs now had a home ground on par, if not better than the Emirates.
It was quite refreshing, honestly, to see a former player sticking to his loyalties yet being light hearted and keeping his opinions blunt and matter-of-fact.
