The immediate past Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is certain that former Gunners midfielder Patrick Vieira has the required qualities to take charge of the North London club in the future.
Wenger talked up Patrick Vieira as the future Arsenal manager in an interview with French media outlet Canal Football Club.
The seven-time FA Cup winner has been impressed with the impact of Vieira in management.
Patrick Vieira took his first job at Manchester City where he was named as the youth team manager.
He then moved to New York City in the Major League Soccer (MLS) before being named the manager of French Ligue 1 side OGC Nice.
He has had a very good first season at Nice who are in eighth spot with 48 points after 33 French Ligue 1 games this season.
Nice are still in contention for European football for next season with five league games left to play.
Patrick Vieira became a legend at Arsenal after he helped the club to three league titles and he was the Gunners skipper as they went unbeaten throughout the 2003/04 season.
He left Arsenal for Italian champions Juventus in the summer of 2015 shortly after he helped the Gunners to win the FA Cup at the expense of rivals Manchester United.
