Ian Wright In Support Of Ade Aid

Ian Wright In Support Of Ade Aid



Following the lead taken by Roy Keane and Gareth Southgate, Arsenal legend Ian Wright has also spoken out against the Adebayor hysteria...

The former Arsenal and England hitman had this to say in The Sun:

'However crazy his actions were, Adebayor - after getting bucketloads of stick for his £25million move - was only doing something which many other players would love to have done. It's just Adebayor had the bottle to go for it.

'After I left Crystal Palace for Arsenal, I got a fair amount of stick. Some fans wrote stuff on the wall of my mum's house accusing me of being a Judas. It wasn't nice that my family was getting dragged into things. The first time I scored against Palace, I did not run over to their fans - even though I thought about it. Putting the ball in the net gave me the real satisfaction.'

Of course, that's precisely what Adebayor shouldn't have done despite what had gone on up until him taking leave of his senses.

But Wrighty admitted with a message clearly aimed at Arsenal's angry mob:

'I must admit, I did celebrate in front of other away fans and after the game, I would usually get a dressing room visit from a policeman. It's just that some fans want everything. They love to scream abuse at players and say things about the players' wives and kids - but if they get something back, they don't like it. And they cannot handle it.

'Togo international Adebayor has clearly been storing a lot anger inside and he wanted to give an instant answer to all of the Arsenal fans.'

In the past 48 hours, Middlesbrough boss Gareth Southgate said:

'If you give it, you have to take it. If people can't accept somebody celebrating, they maybe shouldn't give him the sort of stick he was getting during the game.'

And reviled Ipswich boss Royston Vasey Keane went one further:

'We shouldn't go over board on him. I think we should go easy on the boy. He's apologised and from my point of view, if he was one of my players I'd hope everybody would leave it at that.'

My one proble with Mr Wright, is that he writes for The Sun. However, this topic keeps coming up more and more, how fans want everything their own way, and hopefully the FA won't condone it.

Ian taking time of to do his show on channel5 during the week days. But he does a cameo phone call on saturdays to give a run down on premiership fixtures. Im suprised with ians comments today, even both his sons played/plays for city, he often has a pop at the owners, kaka bid, lescot bid, laughing at city signing adebayor, robinho's commitment, city's cash etc. I swear, all i hear from him on talksport is city bashing. Wierd considering swp is a city player. I agree with him today.

Ian Wright was responsible for one of the biggest travesties I ever saw on a football field at Maine Road in 87 when he and Mark Bright battered City keeper Eric Nixon out of the game, goading him into getting sent off. When I interviewed SWP last February we joked about it and Shaun said "Dad could be evil." Christ, he'd have been banned for 20 games for his actions in that 2-3 Palace win in this modern age!

Ian Wright has only said what any objective, self respecting member of the media would say - Can't say that I've seen too many since the weekend though, only him, Cascarino, Shearer, Redknapp, Jewell and Beagrie and the common link is that they are all ex-players.
