The 28-year old former Manchester City, Southampton and Charlton Athletic striker has signed a deal with the Red Bulls after a decade in his native England and has revealed that it was not at all a hard decision to make.
"I thought, 'I couldn't say no,'" he said.
"The players that are here, the facilities, I wanted to be a part of it.
"Everything, you know, that you want in a club is here and I just wanted to experience it."
During his time in the UK, Wright-Phillips scored 27 goals in 145 Championship appearances, 48 in 95 League One outings and a single Premier League goal for City in the 2005/06 season.
