David Seaman says he is torn between Patrick Vieira and Luis Enrique to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. Wenger has just three more matches in charge of the Gunners after his team were knocked out of the Europa League by Atletico Madrid. The 68-year-old won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups during his 22-year reign at the club but will step down at the end of the season.
Former England goalkeeper Seaman, who was present for two of Arsenal’s title triumphs under Wenger, has revealed his two candidates to succeed the Frenchman. ‘I’m torn between going down the ex-player route, someone like Patrick Vieira, or an experienced manager,’ he told talkSPORT. ‘I saw Vieira on the touchline the other night managing New York and he looked like Arsene.
‘He was just looking. He wasn’t ranting and raving, he was just looking at the pitch and it totally reminded me of Arsene. ‘But [the job] might be a bit too big and it might come a bit too early for him, I don’t know. ‘Other than that, I’m looking at someone like Enrique. He has got great experience and has managed at a great club, been successful at a great club.
