Wright-Phillips fears being pushed out of Man City

Shaun Wright-Phillips fears he's being forced out of Manchester City.

The Sun says City chief executive Garry Cook and football administrator Brian Marwood seem to be slamming the door on him.

A club insider said: "Shaun wants to commit to the club for the rest of his playing career but Marwood and Cook don't seem to be interested and won't even talk to him. He's really heartbroken and confused by their attitude."

His current deal runs out in 2012. But he is looking for a new five-year contract to take him to the end of his career and is asking for £75,000 a week - a demand he does not believe is unreasonable in the current footballing climate as it will be the most important deal of his career.

He cannot understand why Cook and Marwood have rejected his demands with no further talks planned.

The insider added: "Shaun would love to finish his career with City.

"He loves the club and the fans and when he returned from Chelsea he really felt like he was coming home.

"Shaun just wants a contract now to ensure that he remains at the club until the end of his career. He does not believe his demands are in anyway outrageous and cannot understand the attitude of Cook and Marwood."
