Arsenal hero Winterburn says Vieira not ready

Arsenal hero Nigel Winterburn says New York City FC coach Patrick Vieira isn't the man to succeed Arsene Wenger.

Winterburn has had his say on Vieira or even Thierry Henry taking charge at the Emirates.

He told BetStars: “Patrick Vieira would be a huge choice because of his history with the club and his years of success as a player, it would definitely excite the supporters.

“I'd be more comfortable with someone who has four or five years coaching experience but sometimes you get a feeling for a manager that it's the right time for them to step up and in the same way as Vieira, Thierry Henry's association with the club could mean he would work as manager because of the time and the respect he would get.

"I'm sure the likes of Vieira, Henry and Bergkamp will come through eventually and be good managers, it's just a question of whether now the right time is to put them in charge."
