Patrick Vieira 'upset' with Arsenal over 'token gesture'

Mikel Arteta

Former Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta could be named as Arsene Wenger's replacement after holding talks with the club and is considering offering Santi Cazorla the opportunity to join his backroom staff, according to the Independent.

The Gunners had initially planned to name a new manager before the World Cup, but the announcement could now come earlier than scheduled, with Arteta set to make his first strides into management.

The 36-year-old has been working as assistant coach to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but has not managerial experience.

The veteran Frenchman is ending a 22-year stay at Arsenal but he has yet to confirm his next move, while former player Mikel Arteta is the front-runner to succeed him at Emirates Stadium.

Vieira is said to be "disappointed" with the Gunners hierarchy, and will not be offered the job.

Vieira is also a firm favourite with Gunners' fans, having helped drive Wenger's Invincibles team through their unbeaten league season of 2003/2004.

"It will be very hard for me [without Arsenal]", Wenger told the official Arsenal website. Now in charge of New York City, Vieira is said to be mystified over whether he has ever been under serious consideration.

Meanwhile, Pires and Vieira were teammates for six years at Arsenal.

"However, he has a very good profile to replace Arsene Wenger, because he knows football, he knows the Premier League and of course, he knows Arsenal".
