MK Dons appoint Ian Wright as first-team coach
MK Dons have appointed former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright as first-team coach.
Wright, 48, worked with the Dons strikers earlier in the season and will take up his role on a part-time basis.
Boss Karl Robinson said: “Ian Wright hasn’t got his qualifications yet but he is working towards them and he will provide invaluable experience, knowledge and inspiration to our players.
“For a while Ian will work with the team through the week, he can’t be with us at weekends because of other contractual commitments, but he will be here Monday to Friday and he will be involved in all our midweek games.”
Wright, who scored 185 goals in 288 games for Arsenal, works as a radio pundit on Saturdays.
“I am thankful to Karl for allowing me the chance to start my coaching career and I am already excited about the new season,” he said.
“The group of players we have at MK Dons are an extremely talented bunch and I am looking forward to working with them on a daily basis.”
