Arsenal are set for major changes in their hierarchy this summer, following the news that Arsene Wenger will step aside after 22 successful years in north London.

A host of names have been linked as potential successors to the Frenchman at the Emirates Stadium, including club legend and former captain Patrick Vieira.

Now managing MLS franchise New York City FC, Vieira has been touted as a potential appointment for Arsenal this summer but the former France international has played down speculation, insisting he’s happy in New York.

Quoted by The Sun, Vieira said:

“I spent nine years at Arsenal which makes the club really special for me. But that is not enough to coach the team.”

“I am always flattered to hear my name linked with different football clubs. That is good for your ego but at the same time, I am happy here. We will see what will happen in the next couple of years.”
