‘F***ing foolishness’: Ian Wright replies to Alan Sugar over commentator remarks
Arsenal has released a pink football shirt for this season which led Lord Alan Sugar to bizarrely question if ex-player Ian Wright would have sported the jersey - and the Arsenal legend gave the perfect response.
The North London club released the light pink-hued shirts for the 2022-23 season and players debuted the third kit at their first Premier League match of the campaign against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Friday.
In the end, the Gunners won 2-0, and players such as Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, and Granit Xhaka appeared happy enough to don their club's new shirt instead of their traditional red home kit.
Though Lord Sugar, a former chairman of Arsenal's bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur, had something to say about it and took to Twitter to randomly ponder if ex-Arsenal player Ian Wright's thoughts on the clothing colour.
"Pink shirts ! I wonder if @IanWright0 would have played in a pink shirt," he tweeted.
\u201cPink shirts ! I wonder if @IanWright0 would have played in a pink shirt.\u201d
One person quickly pointed out to The Apprentice star that he was no stranger to wearing a pink shirt himself and replied with a screenshot of Lord Sugar from an episode of the BBC business show wearing a shirt in a similar shade of pink as the Arsenal players.
