Arsenal No2 Rice ponders retirement

Arsenal assistant manager Pat Rice is considering retirement at the end of the season, it has been revealed.

The Times says Rice, 60, arrived at Arsenal as a 15-year-old apprentice in 1964 and made 528 appearances as a right back before joining Watford in 1980. He returned to Highbury four years later to work as a coach and became Arsène Wenger's assistant in 1996.

Wenger is under pressure to sign players after Arsenal failed to win a trophy this season for the fourth consecutive season and the manager may also feel that it is time to freshen up his backroom staff.
