Arsenal hero Petit: Vieira, Arteta not ready for Wenger's job

Arsenal hero Emmanuel Petit says Arsene Wenger's successor needs to boast major experience.

Wenger will end his 22-year rule over the club when he takes charge of his final game against Huddersfield Town today.

On the Frenchman's potential replacements, Petit told RMC: "For me, (Massimiliano) Allegri has done remarkable work at Juve with a budget far from that of the big European teams.

"(Patrick) Vieira could also be a solution, but I think it's still premature."

Petit is even less effusive when describing Manchester City coach Arteta's chances.

He added: "I don't see it. He's very good next to Pep Guardiola on the bench at Manchester City."
