Wright scored a whopping 185 goals in 288 games for The Gunners during his seven year career in North London - and was of course the club’s record goalscorer until Thierry Henry came along.
He is also still a massive fan of his former club - regularly commenting on events at the club either on TV, radio or indeed through his official Twitter account.
While of course Arsenal remain his team, he is also an undoubted member of the strikers union.
The former England international was therefore one of many pleased to see Roberto Soldado score this afternoon - even if he did score it for Arsenal's arch-enemies Tottenham Hotspur.
I'm absolutely delighted for Soldado!— Ian Wright (@IanWright0) November 30, 2014
Tottenham were by far the better team at White Hart Lane, deserving their 2-1 triumph.
The goal from Soldado was also very important. On the stroke of half-time it ended up being the winning strike for Tottenham. But not only was it an important team goal, it was also an important individual goal. Soldado has struggled in recent times, failing to hit the net in the Premier League for nine months before this strike.
So there is no wonder Wright was happy to see another clearly gifted striker get over his mini-hump.
