Patrick Vieira reveals he would welcome the chance to manage Arsenal after Unai Emery.

The 43-year-old legend who won three Premier League titles as a player at the Gunners and captained the team for three years is now in his second season as boss of Nice.

Vieira began his managerial profession at New York City FC before making a move to Ligue 1, while he led Nice to a seventh-placed finish in his first season at the club.

The World Cup champion also held brief talks with North London club following Arsene Wenger’s departure last year, but the Arsenal opted to replace the Frenchman with Emery.

But when asked by RMC Sport about possibly managing Arsenal in the future, Frenchmen says he would be keen to take the job: ‘Yes, like any player, when we do this job, we want to touch the very highest level.

‘But the very high level I can touch with Nice from the moment we give ourselves the means to succeed and from the moment the way which we work is quite consistent.

‘But we do this job, and I do this job, to one day to be the coach of a team that participates in the Champions League.’
