Speaking ain a video he posted on social media after the Man United game against Liverpool, Wright said Kobbie Mainoo should have been in the England squad.

“How’s Kobbie Mainoo not in that squad. Roy [Keane], how’s Kobbie Mainoo not in that squad. Come on, man. Come on, eh? The man was immense today.”

Kobbie Mainoo has been named in the England U21s squad for their upcoming European Championship qualifiers.
