The 10 most beautiful assists in the Premier League in the 2022/23 season (Sport1)
Wayne Bridge has been one of England's most dominant left-back defenders for years. Although he won only one league title with Chelsea in 2004/5, from 1998/99 to 2012/13 he played in the Premier League, first for Southampton and then Chelsea, Fulham on loan for the season, Manchester City and also on loan at West Ham and Sunderland before being relegated to Brighton from the Championship and then retiring at Reading.
In an interview with the English media, he surprised by choosing Glenn Hoddle as the best manager of his career, rather than Jose Mourinho as the kingdom expected, but our attention was caught by his answer concerning Abraham Grant, who coached him during the relegation season from the Premier League with West Ham.

"It's very hard for me to pick who is the best manager I've had in my career, but if I have to pick one then Glenn Hoddle at Southampton," Bridge said first, "He was amazing for me and Southampton, I just think maybe I was left a little disappointed that he didn't take me with him to Tottenham because I really liked playing under him. Mourinho came and won trophies, but for me the best was Hoddle."
Asked about his time at West Ham, where he was loaned out in January 2011 from Manchester City and with whom he was relegated, he replied: "I think about the coaches I've had in my career and with West Ham I went down when Grant was manager - it just didn't work. That's probably why it's the worst."
