Vieira stuns Arsenal fans: C'mon Rennes!

Nice coach Patrick Vieira is backing Rennes to defeat former club Arsenal in tonight's Europa League clash.

Vieira won three Premier League titles with Arsenal and was a key figure in their invincible side in 2003/04.

"I have not seen the games [Rennes vs Arsenal] but the result didn't surprise me," he said.

"Rennes are a really good Ligue 1 team. Offensively they are able to score against all teams in every minute of a game.

"It's very good that they won for French football.

"We are all supporting Rennes and all the French teams in the Europa League.

"We hope they can qualify for the next round when they travel to London next Thursday."
