Pep Guardiola believes Patrick Viera is ready for Arsenal job


Arsenal are in the market for a new manager

Arsene Wenger announced on Friday that he will leave the club at the end of the season after 22 years in charge. The Gunners are expected to start looking at potential candidates to replace the Frenchman.

One of the candidates is their former player Patrick Viera. He captained Arsenal during their golden period under Wenger at the start of this century, with his powerhouse midfield performances at the heart of their celebrated 2003-04 ‘Invincibles’.

He is now the head coach of New York City, who operate under the City Football Group umbrella. Pep Guardiola feels he has seen enough during his two years at City to suggest Vieira is up to the challenge and ready to replace Wenger as the new manager.

“Of course, he already is,” the Manchester City coach replied when asked whether Vieira can become a “top manager”, as quoted by Goal.com

“Now, with what happened [Wenger’s announcement] there is a lot of names there.

“Arsenal is going to take the best decision for them. But, of course, he is ready.

“I think all the names that are going to start to go – this name or this name or the other one – all of them, they are ready.”
