Ian Wright’s dig at Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke after Leicester’s FA Cup triumph

Ian Wright expressed that watching Leicester City owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha celebrate winning the FA Cup on Saturday gave him a feeling of “jealousy”, as he suggested that Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke wouldn’t show the same level of enthusiasm or care about the club.

Arsenal legend Wright has never hidden his feelings about Kroenke’s ownership of the club, and clearly felt his club was missing out as he watched Srivaddhanaprabha celebrate the win.

Leicester beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley to win the FA Cup for the first time in their history on Saturday.

The Foxes were cheered on by 10,000 fans and won the match through an incredible goal from Youri Tielemans.

The midfielder fired the ball into the top corner from 25 yards out, leaving Kepa Arrizabalaga with no chance.

And afterwards, Srivaddhanaprabha was heavily involved in the celebrations, and was visibly emotional at seeing his club lift the trophy.

Having taken over the club following the tragic death of his father in a helicopter crash in 2018, Srivaddhanaprabha has played an active role and is often seen at matches.

And watching him lift the cup and celebrate with Brendan Rodgers, Wright admitted he felt jealous.

He said: “Tell you what, look at him with the players, with the manager.

“The jealousy I feel, knowing an owner can be like that…

“It’s honestly, it breaks my heart.

“I’m absolutely delighted for Leicester and him.

“Magnificent, magnificent. Brilliant.”

Wright has voiced his support for Kroenke to sell Arsenal on numerous occasions, but appears to be out of luck, as the club has reportedly denied any takeover bid from Spotify CEO Daniel Ek.
