Wright has admitted he's been impressed by the England international so far this term.
“I think he is more than good enough as a player," Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I like him simply because of the pressure he was under when he went to Liverpool, for the price tag and the character he showed.
"Not only to get through that with the players that he was around at the time, but to get through that and become captain.
"And now he is playing behind a sensational quartet of players which is only going to make him and them better."
