Arsenal former head coach, Arsene Wenger, has stated that the club’s ex captain, Patrick Vieira, will return to the club as manager in the future.
After retiring from football the midfielder took up a job at Manchester City youth-team and later had a senior post in MLS with New York City.
He then returned to his native France in the summer of 2018 at Nice. Wenger while speaking with Canal Football Club said;
“I see him as the Arsenal coach one day because I think he is too young to go directly into international football.”
“I think his life will go through club football. He has constructed his career intelligently and patiently.”
“He left when he was young, he went to New York, he is now in Nice and he has taken time to mature and learn his profession.”
“And something you can’t give: he has a natural charisma, he is both elegant and authoritative.”
“He has passed through a difficult time at Nice but he showed no signs of weakness.”
“It is in times of crisis you see the coach,”
