Outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he would like to manage another top European club after he leaves London at the end of the season, per Jeremy Wilson for the Telegraph.

"I feel sorry that after Sir Alex Ferguson - but it was obviously Sir Alex's decision [to leave] - the next big one, the next iconic one is leaving the Premier League". 'For anyone to have commitment to a team and the loyalty he's shown, through all the ups and downs, through outside individuals saying negatives, positives, media saying positives, negatives, but to stay true to your values and continue to strive to what you believe in, I think he's really been awesome.

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira made a surprise response to reports tipping him as Arsene Wenger's successor for the head coach role of the Premier League club.

"I'm fully committed to Mercedes", he said. "No I have not spoken with anyone at Arsenal regarding the position because I love it here at Atletico and I am very happy", Simeone told reporters at his pre-match press conference. In that season, United inflicted arguably the worst humiliation of Wenger's time in charge, an 8-2 defeat at Old Trafford that still scars plenty of Gunners supporters.

Vieira, who previously worked in the youth academy at Manchester City, said: 'It's an honour to be mentioned with Arsenal.


"So I wouldn't throw everything at it if I was Arsenal because Atletico are more than capable of picking them off and getting an away goal". But while the Ancelotti name would certainly help attract top talent to the Emirates, at 58 he is hardly a long-term option, and also remains a leading candidate for the Italian national team, a post which may prove hard for him to turn down.

In his 22-year reign at the club, he won three English topflight titles, seven FA Cups and seven Community Shields, and he stands a chance to win his first European title with the club this season. "I think his future is as bright as he wants it to be, so I hope he takes the positivity out of all the great experiences he's had". Fans live in the moment but that's the world we are living in.

The former France global captained the Gunners to three Premier League titles during his nine-year spell at the north London outfit.

As he chases one final piece of silverware as Arsenal manager, it's up to Wenger to find the right balance.
