Vieira may play on after Man City release

Released Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira could play on next season.

The Independent says Vieira is due to have further discussions with City, who have effectively made him a free agent by not including him on their retained list of players, and Roberto Mancini may offer him a coaching role, in recognition of the way that the club's expensively assembled squad looks up to him.

But the 34-year-old does not feel he is yet ready to move into that side of the game.

Offers have come in from the United States and Qatar and a European move is also possible, though he is yet to decide where to move next.
