ABOUT

Shaun Cameron Wright-Phillips is an English footballer who plays as a winger for Queens Park Rangers and the England national team. Wright-Phillips was released by Nottingham Forest at the age of 17 and Manchester City took him to Maine Road. He made his debut as a substitute in the second leg of a League Cup match against Burnley. From 2000–2003 he won Manchester City's Young Player of the Year award four times in succession. On 17 November 2004, he became one of the main targets of racist chants from the crowd at an international friendly between England and Spain in Madrid. He proved that he is a better man than them by brushing the incident aside and letting his football skills do the talking. On 17 July 2005, Wright-Phillips completed a £21 million, move to Premier League champions Chelsea. His first goal for the club came in a 2–0 Champions League win over Levski Sofia on 5 December 2006, almost 17 months after his transfer. On 28 August 2008, he re-joined his former club Manchester City on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £8.5million. On his second debut, Wright-Phillips scored two goals against Sunderland in the 3–0 away win in the Premier League. On 31 August 2011, the final day of the transfer window, Wright-Phillips signed for Queens Park Rangers. He made his full debut for QPR against Newcastle United on 12 September 2011, making the starting line-up and winning Man of the Match by supporters. He scored his first goal for QPR against Walsall in the League Cup on 28 August 2012. He is the adopted son of former England international, Ian Wright and the half-brother of fellow professional football player Bradley Wright-Phillips.
