Ian Wright Is Taking Some Serious Grief For His Arsenal Bet
Ian Wright may have been incredibly vocal with his criticism of Arsenal's performances over the past year or two, but now that the Gunners legend is backing his former team to win the Premier League, he's taking a serious amount of grief.
When an online bookmaker tweeted the Arsenal legend, asking him whether he fancied the odds they had set for Arsene Wenger's side to beat Leicester City in the opening game of the Premier League season tomorrow night and then go onto win their first league title in 14 years, Wright responded positively.
However, not everyone shared Wright's enthusiasm for the wager.
For those that don't understand the odds, if you place 50 quid on that 20/1 bet, you'll lose 50 quid :thumbsup:- Tom Osmond (@Tom_Osmond21) August 10, 2017
