Arsenal legend backs SWP's Spurs move

Arsenal legend Ian Wright will have no problem with son Shaun Wright-Phillips pulling on a Tottenham shirt this season.

The former Crystal Palace and England forward was regularly the victim of a barrage of abuse every time he played for the Gunners against their north London enemies.

But he is prepared to bury the hatchet if Spurs strike an £11m deal with Chelsea for the exciting winger, who first hit the headlines with Manchester City.

Speaking on his drivetime radio show on talkSPORT, Wright said he was not sure if his son was going to move to Tottenham.

But he added: "If my son wants to play for Spurs, I will support him playing for Spurs. If it means small-minded Arsenal fans saying I will not be popular at the Emirates then they are idiots. I am now a football pundit, I am a Londoner and I support all London teams."
