Vieira ‘flattered’ by Arsenal links

Patrick Vieira is “flattered” after being linked with taking over as manager of former clubArsenal but says he is “happy” as New York City coach.

The former France midfielder won three Premier League titles with the Gunners under Arsene Wenger, who will leave the club at the end of the season.

“I spent nine years at Arsenal which makes the club really special for me,” he told New York radio station WNYE.

“But that is not enough to coach the team.”

Vieira, like Wenger, arrived at Arsenal in 1996 when he signed from AC Milan and made 371 appearances for the club, scoring 32 goals.

He retired as a player before going into coaching and left his role as head coach of Manchester City’s Under-21s to take over at New York City in January 2016.
