Arsene Wenger surprised everyone when he announced that he will be stepping down as an Arsenal manager at the end of the 2017/18 season and most of the Arsenal fans that were calling for Wenger out in every match were happy to see this news. But now the club is now on a search for a new manager to pick up the broken pieces left by Arsene Wenger but it seems they are mixed reactions on the Arsenal board’s want to appoint Mikel Arteta as their new manager, even legend Robert Pires is against it.
It’s been reported that Mikel Arteta has already been offered a deal by the Arsenal board to take over the club which he left as a player just two years ago and is now a Manchester City coach which makes supporters to see him as un fit to manage the North Londoners.
Robert Pires has already spoken about the options the gunners have and he has continually been saying that Patrick Vieira is the right man for the Arsenal job and he explains that the Frenchman is doing well at New York City in the USA.
“He (Vieira) I has a very good profile to replace Arsene Wenger because he knows football, he knows the Premier League and of course he knows Arsenal.” the legend told Metro Sport.
“So that’s why I say yes, Patrick Vieira is ready to manage Arsenal.”
Patrick Vieira has denied the rumours that he is going to replace Arsene Wenger but he is one of the favourites to take over the job if the Arsenal board fails to convince their first choice Mikel Arteta to come back to the Emirates Stadium.
