Peterborough United have suspended manager Mark Wright amidst reports of racism.

The former Oxford United boss has been at the centre of newspaper claims that he has incurred the wrath of Posh chairman Barry Fry for allegedly making racist comments towards his playing staff.

A statement released via the official club website read: "Peterborough United manager Mark Wright has been suspended on full pay pending an enquiry."

This is not the first time that the former England hero has been haunted by such claims. In 2001 he was fined by Oxford after being found guilty of making racist comments towards referee Joe Ross.

He subsequently retired as U's manager before returning to club management with Chester City in January 2002.

42-year-old Wright then joined Peterborough in May of last year.
