Ian Wright Says He Absolutely Loves Tottenham Star

    Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright recently expressed his admiration for Tottenham Hotspur’s Croatian wing-back, Ivan Perisic. Wright was a guest on the Wrighty’s House Podcast, where he discussed Perisic’s contribution to Spurs’ recent match against Everton.

    Although Tottenham could only manage a 1-1 draw, Perisic put in a strong performance on the pitch, despite concerns over his fitness. The Croatian international had missed some training sessions leading up to the match, but he still played the full 90 minutes at Goodison Park.

    Perisic, who was signed on a free transfer from Inter Milan by Antonio Conte in the summer, has made a significant impact at Tottenham. He has been delivering lethal crosses and corners with both feet and linking up well with Spurs’ star striker, Harry Kane.

    Wright, who was a rival of Perisic’s during his time at Arsenal, could not hide his admiration for the Croatian’s skills. “Can I say, with [Ivan] Perisic, I love Perisic man. Left foot, right foot, he put in some crosses yesterday and you think to yourself, ‘wow man’,” Wright said.

    Despite his age, which is not specified in the original article, Wright believes that Perisic could still be a vital player for Tottenham. However, the imminent return of Destiny Udogie and the presence of Ryan Sessegnon in the squad may limit his playing time. Additionally, if Tottenham’s new manager decides to switch to a back four formation, Perisic could struggle to fit into the team.

    Overall, Perisic’s performance against Everton was impressive, and it is clear that he has made a positive impact since his arrival at Tottenham. Although his future at the club may be uncertain, Wright’s praise for Perisic is a testament to the Croatian’s skill and contribution to the team.
