Dennis Bergkamp has come out and said that Arsene Wenger made a mistake by not going all out and doing everything he could do to get Patrick Vieira to return to Arsenal in the summer as a coach. Instead Vieira opted to stay at Manchester City and be a coach there rather than return to a club where he is a legend.
Bergkamp told the Daily Mail, “There was talk of Patrick going to Arsenal during the summer.
“I would’ve done everything possible to get him there. Just to get him in and around the dressing room. It would have brought so much to the team.”
I agree with the Ice Man, having someone like Vieira as part of our backroom staff is just what we need right now to add some steel to the squad. Surely if Wenger really wanted Patrick to return, he would have agreed.
