Arsenal legend Wright: Wilkins axe proof Chelsea have no class

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Chelsea have no class over the departure of Ray Wilkins.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says Chelsea have no class over the departure of Ray Wilkins.

Wright wrote in his column for The Sun: "Chelsea have once again proved they have loads of money but a shortage of class.

"I did not like the way they tapped-up both Ashley Cole and Sven Goran Eriksson or how Claudio Ranieri was treated when he was shoved out the door.

"Their latest example of behaving shabbily was the sacking of No 2 Ray Wilkins.

"Equally, Roman Abramovich has proved he has little respect for Carlo Ancelotti by removing Ray seemingly without the manager's approval.

"There is no way you could ever imagine the Glazers dismissing Mike Phelan without the knowledge of Alex Ferguson or Arsenal ignoring Arsene Wenger and kicking out Pat Rice.

"It just wouldn't happen. But it appears Ancelotti is only charged with team matters and these events over the last few days have merely weakened his position."
