What emotional Ian Wright said about Arsenal after Leicester celebrated their first FA Cup win.
As Ian Wright saw the Leicester team celebrating joyously with their owner on the Wembley turf, the Arsenal legend’s disappointment with his former club only grew.
Leicester City lifted the FA Cup on Saturday after they beat Thomas Tuchel Chelsea 1-0, in a match that saw Kasper Schmeichel bringing chairman Top Srivaddhanaprabha onto the field after the final whistle to parade the trophy in front of the 20,000 crowds.
Top’s father, the man who sparked the Leicester fairytale, Vichai, perished in a helicopter crash back in 2018. The emotion in northwest London again confirmed the Foxes’ unparalleled bond between the pitch, terrace, and boardroom.
“I tell you what, look at him with the players, with the manager,” Wright said, reacting to the celebrations on the BBC.
“The jealousy I feel, knowing an owner can be like that… honestly, it breaks my heart.
“I’m absolutely delighted for Leicester and him. Magnificent, magnificent. Brilliant.”

It’s a different story at the Emirates. There will be no celebrations for Arsenal this season, and certainly none arm-in-arm with Stan Kroenke any time soon.
While Leicester have powered into the top-four fight and extended to develop quickly as a club, the Gunners have slid to mid-table. The once-great foundation now lies in ninth, with European qualification of any kind now all-but off the table.
The European Super League dishonesty has brought supporters’ frustrations with the Kroenke’s to different heights, charging the Americans’ walk. Spotify founder Daniel Ek is planning to rescue the club with a takeover try, but the Swede’s first bid was rejected.
“I’m with the fans, I’d like the Kroenke’s out”, Wright added on Match of the Day amid the Super League fallout.
“Josh Kroenke has already said they’re not going anywhere so now it’s up to the Government to try and make the kind of change to these owners, which for me has to have fan involvement.
“We can’t carry on like this, we can’t have owners like that. They’re invisible to us.”
