Jeremy Corbyn wants Patrick Vieira to replace Unai Emery at Arsenal despite Freddie Ljungberg being named as interim head coach. The Spaniard was sacked last week after the 2-1 Europa League defeat at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt left the Gunners seven games without a win.
Labour leader Corbyn has picked out Arsenal legend Vieira as the best choice to takeover at the Emirates as they search for a return to Champions League football, despite Mikel Arteta’s links to the role.
Vieira is currently managing Nice in France after a spell in MLS with New York City, and was linked to his former club after Arsene Wenger left in the summer of 2018.
The World Cup winning Frenchman made 279 league appearances for the club between 1996 and 2005, helping Arsenal to three Premier League titles.
Corbyn thinks that the 43-year-old now has the required experience to be a success in north London, and ruled himself out of the running with a smile.
