In One play


Haji Wright has been everywhere. Okay, not really, but it certainly feels that way. Wright went from the New York Cosmos in the NASL to Schalke in Germany to Sandhausen to VVV-Venlo in the Netherlands to SønderjyskE in Denmark to Antalyaspor in Turkey. That’s quite the list of clubs, isn’t it? Outside of Schalke, where he struggled to truly break into the team, Wright hasn’t played for a ton of super high-profile clubs. But he can be an effective striker, dropping into midfield to lay the ball off before turning and running into the box.
