Nahki Wells reveals Bristol City training session with England legend ahead of Leeds clash
Bristol City forward Nahki Wells has revealed that England and Arsenal legend Ian Wright was invited to train with the Robins last week.
Lee Johnson reached out to Wright who joined in with training and gave in-depth insights to the club’s forward such as Wells and Andi Weimann.
Wells has found the back of the net once against the Whites this season, his controversial goal after the ball hit his hands twice in Queens Park Rangers’ recent 1-0 victory over Leeds.
Wells admitted that Wright gave great advice over his intelligence in-and-around the 18-yard box that can see him create space for more chances in games.
“Just that cute intelligence in and around the box,” he told the Bristol Post.
“You kind of know it, but to see it and hear it, and for him to pinpoint certain things to do, it’s always ideal.

“Let’s be honest, he’s been one of the best finishers in this country, so to get advice off him in training was good.”
Wright was also a familiar face at Elland Road in the first half of the season, as he came to watch the progress of then Arsenal loanee Eddie Nketiah.
Leeds will need to be wary of Wells, with the Bermudan striker no stranger to finding the back of the net consistently against us, no matter which club he plays for.
The 29-year-old has already scored 14 goals in his 29 appearances, but on average was more dangerous for QPR than he was in his debut for Bristol against Derby County last time out.

Leeds will have identified the threat he possesses in the final third, and the likes of Liam Cooper and Ben White will need to look out for those little movements similar to the ones Wright made back in his career on Saturday – you never know.
