ANTHONY WRIGHT returned from what he described as the best experience of his life to find his Vauxhall Motors squad building fitness and momentum ahead of the new season.
Fulfilling his day-job as a coach at Liverpool’s academy, Wright was aboard the club’s tour of the far-east as he helped deliver coaching clinics to youngsters in China, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
Alongside colleagues from Liverpool’s community department, the Motor’s manager conducted sessions in deprived areas and put children with disabilities through their paces with the help of some of the Reds first-team stars.
“A few of the first-team squad came along and joined in,” said Wright. “Andy Carroll, Conor Cody, Brad Jones, Daniel Ayala and others. So it was good for the kids and it was good for the club.
“It was the best experience of my life to be with the first-team. Watching them train in-front of 40,000 people. It was just unbelievable.”
The recently installed boss admitted he managed to pick up on some new ideas from watching Liverpool’s elite in training and he is now eager to get back to duties at Rivacre Park.
“There was a few things I saw which were technical,” he added.
