Patrick Vieira has distanced himself from rumours he could succeed Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager this summer, after the latter announced his intention to step down at the end of the season on Friday.
Vieira, who won three Premier League titles and four FA Cups as a player under Wenger, said he remains content at MLS side New York City FC during an interview with radio station WNYE (h/t Sky Sports):
“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.”
