SLTV: Former Arsenal Striker’s Praise For CBL
Former Arsenal and England international striker, Ian Wright had some great words to say about how he feels about the upcoming Carling Black Label Cup.
After being called off last year, the cup clash will get back underway this year, with the Soweto Derby showdown scheduled to take place on July 27, at the FNB Stadium.
Talking to the public yesterday, Wright, who plied his trade for the likes of the Gunners, Crystal Palace and Burnley, explained why he thinks it is important for clubs to engage with the fans.
“For the Soweto derby, I was so excited, I have seen so many derbies across the world, but when they invited me for this one, simply because the fans have the opportunity to make the changes in the Carling Cup.
Choose the captain, choose the substitutions, choose everything, it is so much power,” Wright said.
“This wouldn’t happen in England, they’re too scared about the power of the fans,” he added.
