Pires tells Vieira: Say 'yes' to Arsenal return

Arsenal hero Robert Pires wants to see Patrick Vieira take over from Arsene Wenger.

The New York City FC coach has admitted interest in the job.

"Of course he is my friend, I talk a lot with him and I can reply yes," Pires told beIN Sports.

“I think Patrick Vieira is ready, he's done very well with New York City for three seasons and has a lot of capacity to be Arsenal manager.

Arsenal and Vieira, yeah. Should be good, very good.

“I say again, I think Patrick Vieira is ready for Arsenal. 100 per cent, yes.

“I hope he will say: 'yes, I'm ready to come and take the seat on the bench.' It's my dream."
