David Wright, who parted company with Colchester last week, has revealed his management aspirations one day if possible.

The 34-year-old, who would have been our of contract with The U’s in the summer but was on the sidelines, agreed a mutual deal with the club to end his contract early and has decided to retire from the game.

Wright does hopes to move into management at some point, but that will be ‘many, many years’ down the line.

He told BBC Radio Suffolk: ‘I think management is the target at the end of the line. But that’s many, many years in the future.

‘I was lucky enough to play many games and I felt I built a reputation but as a coach it’s like your youth training scheme again. You’ve got no reputation and nobody knows who you are.

‘Many years down the line if the opportunity to manage comes around I’m sure I will take it.’

A career that started in 1997, and saw him play 538 games, had his most successful and enjoyable spell with Ipswich Town, leaving them when he was released in 2010 still hurts him now.

Wright might have stopped playing for us but he remains a coach at the Weston Homes Community Stadium as he continues to work with the youth team.
