Man City veteran Vieira: I regret snubbing Real Madrid

Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira admits he has one regret in his career - not joining Real Madrid.

Vieira admits the treatment of former France teammate Claude Makelele put him off signing for Real when they came knocking while he was with Arsenal.

"I do not regret anything in my career, but if I could change something, it would be Real Madrid. I only regret not having signed for the Merengues," said Vieira.

"At the time, I was worried about the treatment of Makelele, and I had this thing locked up in my mind."
