Kroenkes want ex-Arsenal player as next manager

Arsenal's owners favour an ex-player as their next manager, it has been claimed.

The Daily Mail says the Kroenkes would rather their next manager have previously played for the club.

Stan and Josh Kroenke want a former Gunners stars in the dugout if possible.

That has come as a boost to Mikel Arteta and could explain why the Manchester City coach is top of Arsenal's wanted list.

Patrick Vieira has likewise been identified by Arsenal as an option to replace Unai Emery, who left the Emirates at the end of last month.
