Ian Wright details the favourite moment of his Arsenal career
Ian Wright has revealed his best moment in an Arsenal shirt was his debut against Leicester.
Wright joined the Gunners from Crystal Palace 1981 and would go on to spend seven years with the north London club.
He scored 185 goals in total and lies behind only the legendary Thierry Henry in the list of the club's top scorers.
Wright also won the FA Cup and Premier League double but enjoyed no game more than his first as he scored in the League Cup tie before scoring a hat-trick on his league debut against Southampton.
He told the Strikers’ Union: "My debut goal [was my best moment]. Obviously the Premier League when I finally got to lift it, but I think the first goal [was my favourite] simply because of the pressure.
"When I came from Crystal Palace, people were saying, 'Why are we buying him, we're scoring goals?' – and it was a lot of money at the time.
"I had to play against Leicester and they were booing me, the Leicester fans were booing, so what happened is I slipped, but then I got up and then… then I started going like this [waving his arms] to the crowd!
"Then Michael Thomas stopped me because he said, You can’t do that at Arsenal! If you do that at Arsenal, you get in trouble'.
"I didn’t know I was playing until that afternoon, then when he said I was playing, we were playing in this kit [bruised banana], but I always wanted to play in the red kit, so when he said I was playing, I was so nervous man."
