Mikel Arteta favourite to become Arsenal manager

Mikel Arteta favourite to become Arsenal manager

Vieira was contacted by Arsenal about the role this week, but the former skipper is said to be "disappointed and upset" by the call, which he apparently branded a "token gesture".

Arsene Wenger took charge of his last game at Huddersfield on Sunday as the curtain came down on a 22-year spell at the helm.

The same story says that both Arteta and former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira are the two main candidates to take over at The Emirates if the Gunners do indeed move to appoint a younger manager.

Arteta would seek to bring in at least three of his own appointments - with further backroom changes expected.

Wenger's assistant Steve Bould has been offered a new role pending the next manager's approval, but he has not yet indicated a definite willingness to stay himself, and is understood to be weighing up a potential position at Stoke City.

However, Chief Executive Officer Ivan Gazidis and director Josh Kroenke, son of Stan, has backed Arteta to steer the club in the right direction.

Vieira is also a firm favourite with Gunners' fans, having helped drive Wenger's Invincibles team through their unbeaten league season of 2003/2004. I think all of them could manage Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Pires and Vieira were teammates for six years at Arsenal.

"It will be very hard for me [without Arsenal]", Wenger said.

'However, he has a very good profile to replace Arsene Wenger because he knows football, he knows the Premier League and of course he knows Arsenal.
