Shaun Wright Phillips joined Queens Park Rangers on August of 2011 and his debut season with the English club was fairly successful as he managed to make over 30 appearances but as each year and season progressed, Wright-Phillips was getting less time in the first team until he eventually opted to make a switch of clubs.

The English player went from making 32 appearances in his first season with Queens Park Rangers to only getting 4 matches of playing time in his last season with the English Championship League outfit.

After dropping so much in the ranks, Shaun Wright-Phillips decided to make a move to a club where he can get more time in the first team and it was the MLS side New York Red Bulls which offered Wright-Phillips a contract.

Even after making a switch to another team, Shaun Wright-Phillips is still struggling to get consistent playing time as he has had to settle with a place on the sidelines with limited playing time and in those particular matches that he does appear its generally in the late minutes of the 2nd half.

Considering the fact that Shaun Wright-Phillips is 34 years old, it’s getting harder for him to get consistent playing time even after changing clubs. It’s more difficult for the English player to compete against younger performers as they are more energetic and filled with spirit which spark life into the pitch.

Unfortunately for Shaun Wright-Phillips, he is the oldest player in the entire squad of Jesse Marsch’s squad in New York Red Bulls. Even though Wright-Phillips does provide experience that nobody else in the MLS club is able to do, it’s still not enough for him to nail down a consistent starter spot for New York Red Bulls and things does not appear like it’s going to be changing anytime soon.
