Ex-Man City keeper Given: Vieira can succeed Guardiola

Former Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given can see Patrick Vieira eventually becoming the club's manager.

Before taking charge of New York City FC, Vieira coached the City U23s.

Given told the Daily Mail: "I do see him being a manager one day, if Pep steps away in a few years, he would be the perfect replacement. He is such a huge character,' says Given.

"I'm sure Patrick has seen what his team-mate Zidane has done at Real Madrid, won two Champions Leagues in a row. If not City, he'll manage a big club in the Premier League or the Champions League.

"I could tell from his team talks as a player that this guy was going places. We have some big stars in that dressing-room but everything was silent when he spoke, every word was listened to."
