Arsenal: Patrick Vieira

Arsenal legend and current Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has distanced himself from Swedish Daniel Ek’s takeover attempt. Following the involvement of the club in the European Super League, Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, and Dennis Bergkamp supported the takeover bid. Stan Kroenke clearly rejected the bid saying they were not interested in selling the club. Vieira succeded Roy Hodgson as the Crystal Palace boss this season and is set to return to the Emirates on Monday.

“I was just expressing myself as Patrick, ex-Arsenal football player,” Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira said. “That comment was based on how the direction (of the club) was going. I was talking to somebody who had a different view and a different way of taking (forward) Arsenal Football Club. This was the reason why Dennis and Thierry were involved in the kind of situation that Arsenal was in. I am in a different position than a couple of months ago. So I’m not going to express myself in the same way as when I was just an ex-Arsenal football player.”

“It hasn’t happened yet, but we and he is here to stay. So let’s see what’s going to happen,” he added. “​When you were looking at the situation at the time it was clear that the Kroenke family was making the statement that the club is not for sale. Then I think everything was over. You can’t buy a football club if it is not for sale.”
