In addition to his two Golden Boots, Wright-Phillips propelled the Red Bulls to three Supporters’ Shield conquests, awarded to the team that finishes first in the general classification.

Before crossing the Atlantic, the striker was trained at the prestigious English club Manchester City. He also played with Southampton, Plymouth Argyle, Charlton Athletic and Brentford.
