Wright-Phillips ready for fight

Wright-Phillips found himself on the fringes of Roberto Mancini’s team last season and faces even more competition for a first team place with the arrival of David Silva from Valencia.

“It was disappointing with what happened in the summer at the World Cup,” said Wright-Phillips.

“My only focus is to get on the pitch and do my thing. I am delighted to be back with the lads and straight into the banter.

“I was in LA for a while being well looked after and now I am ready to go.”
