Ian Wright makes surprising admission ahead of final Tottenham game at WHL
By Danny Wright
Ian Wright has admitted that he will miss Tottenham’s White Hart Lane ahead of Sunday’s clash against Manchester United.
It will be the final time that Spurs will play at their historic home and Wright, an Arsenal legend, still wanted to remind fans that he didn’t struggle to find the net there.
The 53-year-old made 288 appearances for the Gunners during his playing career, and scored a total of 185 goals in all competitions.
He makes no secret of his animosity towards Tottenham, which adds to the surprising nature of his classy farewell to Spurs’ old ground.
“The Lane. Broke a few hearts in this place. Remember it was all pleasure never business. You will be missed,” said Wright on his personal Twitter account.

Demolition work will begin on White Hart Lane after this weekend to pave way for Spurs’ new 61,000-seater stadium.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men will play at Wembley next season, but that might not be good news to the fans due to their poor results at the England national team’s stadium in European competition this term.
Tottenham can finalise their runners-up status with a win against Jose Mourinho’s side on Sunday.
Chelsea have already won the Premier League title but Manchester City’s 2-1 win against Leicester at the Etihad on Saturday means they can still drop down to third if their form dips.
