Shaun Wright-Phillips had a bright career in front of him before he joined Chelsea from Manchester City in 2005. But his progress has stalled in these past three years due to the lack of first-team opportunities he had at Chelsea.
Now, his step-father and former Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has urged him to quit Chelsea and find regular football elsewhere – with Portsmouth believed to be interested – according to The Sun.
“I think Portsmouth would be a good move for Shaun.” Said Ian Wright according to the report in The Sun.
“He’s won a lot of medals and has done well at Chelsea. But he could go somewhere like Portsmouth and completely resurrect his career.
“Shaun can get people talking about him again like they used to when he was at City.
“He’s only shown flashes of what he can do at Chelsea. But if he’s playing regularly I think he can light up the Premier League again because he’s a quality player.”
According to the same report, Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has declared his interest in the player, but is yet to make a concrete move for Wright-Phillips.
