Bradley and Shaun Wright-Phillips are brothers, both of which have had a fairly similar footballing career at least during their initial years as professional players as each of them performed with Manchester City and it was the first top European club that they joined.
Red Bulls have ended the contracts of Shaun Wright-Phillips, Aurelien Collins, Damien Perrinelle and Kyle Reynish, according to reports.
The Major League Soccer outfit can still keep the players if they want to stay but would have to negotiate a new deal.
Former top Premier League referee Howard Webb has admitted that he is unsure of he did not make a mistake for not sending Cristiano Ronaldo off for an offence he committed during the Manchester derby far back in 2008.
Ronaldo played at Man United before his record-breaking transfer to Spanish giants, Real Madrid in 2009.
The former Manchester City, Chelsea and England winger, has been loaned out to New York Red Bulls reserve team by Queens Park Rangers to get some much-needed playing time and also where he meet his brother, Bradley Wright-Philip's.
Shaun Wright Phillips joined Queens Park Rangers on August of 2011 and his debut season with the English club was fairly successful as he managed to make over 30 appearances but as each year and season progressed, Wright-Phillips was getting less time in the first team until he eventually opted to make a switch of clubs.
The English player went from making 32 appearances in his first season with Queens Park Rangers to only getting 4 matches of playing time in his last season with the English Championship League outfit.
Shaun Wright Phillips, who is the best player for New York Red Bulls, was on the score sheet as the team defeated Club America with 2-0 in Red Bull Arena in a friendly match on Wednesday.
The former Chelsea and Manchester City winger won the opening goal soon after he made his entry in an impressive style.
Former Manchester City and England midfielder Shaun Wright-Phillips has been loaned to the reserve team of New York Red Bulls.
The reason behind this move is that the midfielder needs playing time in order to recover his fitness following his injury.
Shaun Wright Phillips wanted Chelsea skipper, John Terry to join him at New York.
This was before John Terry has handed a one-year deal to remain at Stamford Bridge. The 35-year old English International was unlikely to receive a new contract at the season end, this made Wright-Phillips, who is currently playing with brother Bradley for New York Red Bulls, want to see his former Blues team-mates join him Stateside.
Wright-Phillips, 34, said:
“It would be amazing to have JT here.
New York Red Bulls have been able to enjoy the pace of Shaun Wright Phillips to the maximum in recent seasons. Manager Jesse Marsch claims that the attitude of the former Chelsea winger has been first class.
Some players are criticised for not showing the 100% commitment to the MLS after having just joined from the European league. Since European football is significantly more competitive, the MLS has been seen as a retirement party for the ageing superstars. However, Wright Phillips has not been taking a similar opinion since joining New York Red Bulls.
The MLS side New York Red Bulls released Shaun Wright Phillips along with a number of other players who just couldn’t manage to find their spot in the team and did not play a very influential role in the American team.
