Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has insisted Arsene Wenger must have been sacked as he can not believe his old boss would have walked away from his post.

The 41-year-old said last month that he would be interested in the Arsenal job, but wouldn't discuss it further while Wenger was still in charge.

However, there is no hiding the fact the Frenchman has bowed out now due to increasing calls for him to go from frustrated fans as Arsenal slipped further behind their Premier League rivals in recent seasons.Arsenal haven't won the league since Wenger's crowing achievement in leading "The Invincibles" to an unbeaten league season in 2003/04.

Pep Guardiola believes Patrick Vieira has the capability to step in as Arsene Wenger's successor at Arsenal.

Enrique has a good relationship with Messi, something which they can use to their advantage in a possible summer move. But, of course, he is ready.

Wenger insists the 25-year-old was never likely to leave and backed him to be at the club for the foreseeable future. "But that is not enough to coach the team".

"I've always said that I'm living my dream here", Rodgers said. Wenger further went on to say, "I've followed his managerial career. You have to come in and there are plenty of former players who played here who have potential, the intelligence and knowledge to do it".
