Former Arsenal player, Patrick Viera, has stated that he wants his former club to be defeated by Rennes in their UEFA Europa League round of 16 second-leg clash.
According to the Arsenal legend, Rennes are good in their league and every French team in the Europa League are supporting Julien Stéphan’s men.
Viera, who is the current manager of OGC Nice, is hoping that Rennes who defeated Arsenal in their first league clash will knock them out of the competition.
“I have not seen the games [Rennes vs Arsenal] but the result didn’t surprise me,” Vieira was quoted by the Express as saying.
“Rennes are a really good Ligue 1 team. Offensively they are able to score against all teams in every minute of a game.”
“It’s very good that they won for French football. We are all supporting Rennes and all the French teams in the Europa League.”
“We hope they can qualify for the next round when they travel to London next Thursday.”
