According to the Telegraph, there’s a chance Patrick Vieira could leave Manchester City when his current contract expires this summer.
The former Arsenal captain wound down his playing career with a single season at the Etihad before being appointed City’s Football Development Executive in 2011.
After two years in the role he became Head of City’s Elite Development Squad; a position he continues to hold.
It’s suggested that City have yet to open talks over an extension and that Bayern Munich – do piss off Guardiola – are pondering a move for the 38-year-old.
Obviously as a legendary Gooner – just the 11 major honours during nine years at Highbury – Arseblog News would love to see Patrick return to the collective Gooner bosom.
We’re not massively fussed what role he’s given. Although we reckon he’d look pretty dope with his feet up in the boardroom, fat Hill-Wood cigar in his mouth, plundering the warchest so that first team coach Thierry Henry can make it rain in the transfer window…
But you know, that’s just us. We’re romantics.
