Shaun Wright-Phillips is a player that has played with several star players during the course of his career which began with Manchester City. The 37 year was quizzed by reporters about the most underrated player that he played with.

It was a surprise that he mentioned Gareth Barry. Wright-Phillips alluded to the fact that Barry was a key-cog for the Manchester City side that he played with. He also revealed that Barry is still underappreciated as fans never appreciated the sort of work that he did on the pitch.

Wright-Phillips has sufficient experience as he played before and after the takeover bid from Sheikh Mansour. He also played alongside several Manchester City legends including Vincent Kompany, Zabaleta and Joe Hart.

He also played for Chelsea with some of the famous Blues stars of the decade including Arjen Robben and Joe Cole.

Gareth Barry made the move to Manchester City in 2009 and made 175 appearances for the Citizens. The England international was the glue that held the midfield for the team that won their first-ever EPL title in 2012.

He featured 34 times for the club and was a major part of the midfield that included Spanish maestro David Silva and Argentine forward Sergi Aguero.

His combination in the midfield helped the club progress as he did the dirty job and gave the distribution that enabled the more attacking players to impress. He later made a transfer to Everton where he would become one of the key figures in for the Blues.

Barry also holds the record for most Premier League caps surpassing Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs to make 653 appearances. He will most likely be regarded as a Premier League great when he eventually hangs his boot.

Barry currently plays for West Brom in the Championship and has given hints that he could hang up his beats this summer.However, the experienced midfielder will always be known as one of the underrated talents that played for Man City.
