Shaun Wright Phillips


Former England national team player Shaun Wright-Phillips has advised manager Gareth Southgate on what he must do to achieve success at Euro 2020. Shaun Wright-Phillips spoke to Sportsmail about England, Southgate and Euro 2020.

Shaun Wright-Phillips knows all about England and what it takes to play at a major tournament after playing 36 times for the Three Lions. The former Chelsea and Manchester City winger was part of the England squad to the 2010 FIFA World Cup tournament on South African soil. England were knocked out of the tournament by Germany at the round of 16 stage.


Ex-Chelsea and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has reflected on the dramatic Premier League title won by the Citizens at the end of the 2011/12 season. Manchester City secured their maiden Premier League title that season after a 3-2 comeback win at home to Queens Park Rangers (QPR).

Manchester City led 1-0 and trailed 2-1 before they eventually won the game thanks to the last gasp strike from Sergio Aguero. That Aguero goal ensured that City finished ahead of city rivals Manchester United to end their title drought spanning almost five decades.


Former Premier League player Shaun Wright-Phillips has revealed when the Manchester power shift happened. He made this known in a chat with The Sun. According to the former Chelsea and Manchester City winger, the power shift from Manchester United to Manchester City happened when the Red Devils were beaten in the 2011 FA Cup semi-finals. Manchester City legend Yaya Toure scored the only goal of the game to lead the Citizens to a slender 1-0 win over Manchester United. Shaun Wright-Phillips said that match was the beginning of the Manchester City dominance till this day. Manchester City have been the dominant force in Manchester at the expense of Manchester United for over a decade.



Ex-Chelsea and Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has criticised new West Ham United player Jesse Lingard after his penalty antics during the win over bottom team Sheffield United on Monday night in the Premier League. Shaun Wright-Phillips was on Premier League TV in the company of Alan Shearer for the game between West Ham United and Sheffield United at the London Stadium and for the game between Chelsea and Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

Jesse Lingard created a little scene when he won a penalty towards the end of the first half. The Manchester United loanee wanted to take the penalty he had won before he was stopped by the captain for the day, Declan Rice who also doubles as the designated penalty taker. Long serving player Mark Noble is the West Ham United but he’s not a regular in the starting XI. In his place, vice-captain Declan Rice is always the captain during games in the Premier League. In the end, Jesse Lingard left the penalty for Declan Rice, who scored to give his team a 1-0 lead at the break. (more…)

England Players must Quit the Field: Shaun Wright Phillips

Wright-Phillips: Chelsea shouldn’t Expect Pulisic to Replace Hazard

Christian Pulisic is not to be expected to fill in as a replacement for Eden Hazard, believes Shaun Wright Phillips. Eden Hazard is ready to leave the blues to join Real Madrid for £88million. Chelsea has signed the young player Christian Pulisic in the month of January. However, they loaned him to Borussia Dortmund towards the season end. Chelsea might have been eyeing this potential transfer ban put on this summer. They had appealed to Court of Arbitration as they signed the player. Wright-Phillips, the former winger of the Blues says that it is not going to be fair to take Pulisic as the replacement.

He says that he would not say that Pulisic is there to fill in the boots of Hazard and it is not to put this load on him. Pulisic is in the club to bring in another way to play for Chelsea. This is going to develop footprints and help him to create his own legacy. Wright-Phillips says that he is surely the players that fans are going to prefer and that in America he is rated quite highly. He also believes the Blues have enough of loan talent which they have to bring back if they have to make up for losing Hazard.
