Ronaldo Assis de Moreira Analyst IIAugust 1, 2009

There is definite potential that Patrick Vieira could be about to make a surprise return to Arsenal after manager Arsene Wenger refused to deny the rumours at his Friday press conference.

In turn, last night Wenger labelled Patrick Vieira as an Arsenal “legend” and did not rule out the extraordinary prospect of bringing back his former captain from Inter Milan at the age of 33.

Wenger: “Patrick is a great player, he’s a legend here. There is a football decision and there’s a psychological impact on a player of that stature that could come in. But at the moment we need to look at the level of experience in the squad to make this kind of decision. We are nowhere near to making a decision like that. It is a possibility.”
