D’Margio Wright-Phillips highlights influence of Stoke City figure as fresh agreement secured



D’Margio Wright-Phillips has praised Michael O’Neill for the way he has helped him at Stoke City as the forward signed a new deal.

The 20-year-old joined the Potters from Manchester City last year and whilst he had to be patient for his chance in the first-team, Wright-Phillips would go on to make ten appearances in the Championship last season.

And, he impressed during that period, so Stoke moved to tie the youngster down on a new and improved contract, which was announced today.

Wright-Phillips is committed to the club for another two years at least, with the club having a one-year option, and the player thanked O’Neill when reacting to his new deal to the club’s media.

I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to get the season going. Michael O’Neill has been a massive influence on me – I broke in quite quickly and he’s been like a father figure towards me.

The coaches have been very influential too, staying out with me after training, doing shooting and other little bits that can help improve my game.”
