Gilberto delighted ex-Arsenal pal Vieira now at Man City
"No-one can doubt that Patrick was a sensational player. He did not have a great time in Italy with Inter Milan but has got a lot to offer with his experience and ability.
"I think it will be a different style of football and also a new challenge at City. But I'm still quite sure that Patrick will get a great reception when he returns to Arsenal with City."
