Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has blasted Arsene Wenger for ignoring coaching talent.
Mikel Arteta followed Vieira in becoming another former Gunners captain to leave for Manchester City’s staff when Wenger allowed him to join Pep Guardiola’s coaching staff at the end of last season.
New York City FC coach Patrick Vieira said: “I’m disappointed not to have ex-Arsenal players working at Arsenal.
“It is good for the young players who could see a Thierry Henry, a Ljungberg, a Sol Campbell or a Martin Keown who have been at the club a good few years working in the academy, or working somewhere. I think they can do it a bit more.
“Players want to do it but do not have the opportunity. I don’t understand it.
“The perfect example is Ajax. You see all the old players working for the club, on the field, in the office – the door is always open for them – but Arsenal don’t do it and I don’t know why.”
