The former Manchester City, Chelsea and England winger, has been loaned out to New York Red Bulls reserve team by Queens Park Rangers to get some much-needed playing time and also where he meet his brother, Bradley Wright-Philip’s.

The previous season, his first with the club, he appeared just 12 times, including one start. When he did not have his option picked up at the end of the 2015 season, he was eventually re-signed on a salary of $116,000 a year.

Former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard – who has also struggled for minutes at rival New York City FC due to injury – is on $6,000,000 a year. The 34-year old decided to join New York Red Bulls due to his complaint of not having enough playing time at Queens Park Rangers in England. The Chelsea and Manchester City former winger’s form is drastically wearied as he moves from one club to another.

Shaun has appeared for his club twenty times out of which he started just two with alone goal in the previous season. He becomes a bit happy whenever he remembers he is in the same club with his younger brother Bradley.

“We played every day, no exaggerations,” Bradley said, recalling his youth.

“I’m talking every day. At that age, it’s just for fun. You dream about playing professionally, but you don’t understand the reality of it. We were among the best of our friends, but I wasn’t thinking too far ahead. I was just out to have fun with football.”

Shaun may not at the end of the season return to QPR where he came from but stay at New York Red Bulls just for the sake of his brother as it is popularly said “Blood is thicker than wine.”
