Arsenal legend Ian Wright has revealed he came close to joining Chelsea when Bruce Rioch was in charge of Arsenal.

Glenn Hoddle was in charge of Chelsea at the time.

“Glenn Hoddle wanted me to go to Chelsea,” Wright told Sky Sports.

“I would have gone reluctantly because I felt I was being pushed out of the club.

“I didn’t get on with Bruce Rioch at all. I felt like he had to make a point to try and show he was the boss – he didn’t have to do that.

“We always argued. In the end, I put in a transfer request.”
