Patrick Vieira has all the credentials to take over from Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
That’s the view of Arsenal hero Ray Parlour who played alongside the Frenchman.
Current boss Wenger is coming under intense pressure after the Gunners were beaten 3-0 in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
The north Londoners are looking likely to miss out on Champions League football again unless they can win the Europa League.
And with the Arsenal board reportedly considering making a managerial change in the summer, Parlour has nailed his colours to the mast.
“The club need a plan behind the scenes now,” he told The Debate on Sky Sports.
“They may decide to go with an inexperienced person like Patrick Vieira or Thierry Henry.
“Or do we want to go with someone who has Champions League experience like Diego Simeone?
“Obviously then there’s Carlo Ancelotti has managed some of the biggest clubs in the world.
“But the one I would take a gamble on, and I think he’d be given time, is Patrick Vieira.
“He’s managed in New York. He knows the club very well and he knows the history of the club.
“I think he could attract big players and I think the fans would give him a chance as well.
“But I think the board may well go for someone with little bit more experience.”
