Davids salutes Oxford United ace Wright
OXFORD United’s Jake Wright is one of the best players in npower League Two, according to former Juventus and Barcelona star Edgar Davids.
The ex-Netherlands international came up against the U’s skipper on Tuesday night as Barnet’s player/head coach.
He looked to have helped the Bees to a point, but a goal deep in stoppage time from Michael Raynes earned United a 1-0 win.
Davids, who turned 40 yesterday, felt the result was harsh on the visitors.
He said: “We had some good moments but they are a good side.
“I think they have one of the best players in the league in Jake Wright – he’s a very good player.
“I’m surprised they are as low as they are in the table. If the game had ended as a draw then I think that would have been fair.”
