Vrsaljko and Simeone sent off in dramatic start to Arsenal v Atletico

"I've supported Arsenal since I was five".

Vieira is now in charge of Major League Soccer outfit New York City FC after previously working as a coach at Manchester City.

Patrick Vieira says he has not been contacted by Arsenal about succeeding Arsene Wenger as coach at the English Premier League club. Whoever the new manager is, Wenger will fully be in support and believes the club are just two or three signings away from competing for a first Premier League title since 2004.

Wenger, speaking to the press ahead of Thursday's semi-final first leg against Atletico Madrid, made it clear he had not been in charge of his destiny. "I have lots of respect for him".

Arsenal are appearing in their eighth European semi-final - they have progressed from six of the previous seven, only failing to reach the final in 2008-09 in the Champions League when they lost to Manchester United.

With a man who has spent 22 years at the Gunners helm preparing to step down, those at Emirates Stadium are busy piecing together plans on how to replace him. When you look at the career that Wenger's had, it's very hard to stay at this level because you're always competing and putting yourself on the line. "But honestly it's not something which will stop me doing what I am doing at the moment".


"I have always had great admiration for Arsene", Gunners supporter Hamilton told reporters.

The Argentine responded to suggestions he could take over from Wenger at Arsenal next season, before going on to praise his opponent.

In recent years, as Wenger has signed contract extension after contract extension without the team improving, it appeared that the manager was preparing the Emirates as his retirement home, even that he might spend the rest of his days there.

"I think the team needs a new direction and mentality based on [being] a little bit more defensive-minded", he said.

"I want to do this for [the players], to achieve something with them, because I feel they have a special mental quality".
