Ian Wright on anger, therapy and glory
Ian Wright talks candidly about anger and the vital role of therapy in helping him channel that fire on the Balance podcast.
The Crystal Palace, Arsenal and England icon chats about his background, how he came to professional football relatively late having come via non-league football and the building trade. As Paul Gascoigne said to him just before his England debut: “Wrighty is going to cry.”
And Balance gets to tell Ian what he means to them – and to the wider world. How a young man with anger issues from a broken home and working class family can carry the hopes and dreams of people way beyond his own London upbringing.
