The ex-Arsenal defender was appointed Wenger’s new number two following the retirement of Pat Rice at the end of last season, and it seems like it has gone down a treat with both the players and the Arsenal faithful
And Vieira, who captained the side for three years and managed to lift three Premier League titles with The Gunners, reckons Bould is the right man to succeed Wenger:
Speaking to talkSPORT’s Keys and Gray Show, Vieira said:
‘I’m not surprised [to see Bould linked with the Arsenal manager’s job].
‘Steve’s been with the youth team at Arsenal for a long time and I know how dedicated he is.’
He finished off by saying:
‘He loves being a coach and would be the perfect successor to Arsene Wenger.
‘He knows the club and young players better than anyone else and he’s got this passion and desire to be a manger. It would be really good for Arsenal.’
Bould would undoubtedly be the right man to take over Wenger.
Like Vieira stated, Bould is Arsenal through-and-through, he knows the youngsters more than anyone else at the club and is dedicated to the cause.
Of course, Vieira’s comments are a little premature as Wenger is still in charge and has a few more years left on his existing contract.
Still, it’s great to see Bould get some recognition, as he is a superb coach and will no doubt get the opportunity to show-off his managerial skills in the future.
Would Bould be the perfect replacement for Wenger?
