Speaking on the Wrighty’s House Podcast, Ian Wright has named the two players he wishes he could have played alongside at Arsenal – Cesc Fabregas and Robert Pires.

Wright was lucky enough to play with some absolute legends during his time at Highbury. The likes of Dennis Bergkamp, Paul Merson and Marc Overmars were his teammates during his time as a Gooner, but there are two players he wishes he could have worked with.

Indeed, Wright named Fabregas as one of the best players he’s ever seen.

What’s been said about Fabregas at Arsenal?

Wright spoke about his adulation of Pires and Fabregas.

“There are two players I’d have loved to have played with at Arsenal, obviously I was lucky enough to play with Dennis (Bergkamp), but that would have been Cesc Fabregas and Pires.

“I adore these guys man, I adore these guys. Robert Pires and Cesc Fabregas, Cesc Fabregas is one of the best I’ve ever seen,” Wright said.

Could you imagine how lethal Wright would have been if he was in the same team as Fabregas?

The midfielder was one of the most creative players the Premier League has ever seen, while Wright simply tormented defences.

Unfortunately, their paths never crossed as Wright was slightly too old by the time Fabregas broke on to the scene. However, the 34-year-old would have been a brilliant foil for the former striker.
