When Wenger was appointed by Arsenal there were similar reactions from many supporters and media members, but he leaves as the second-most decorated manager in the Premier League era. Now in charge of New York City, Vieira is said to be mystified over whether he has ever been under serious consideration.

With the Emirates Stadium debts to pay and the rise of Chelsea and Manchester City in the years immediately after the "Invincibles", Wenger kept Arsenal on a relatively even keel.

New York City FC manager Patrick Vieira is reportedly unhappy after he received a "token gesture" phone call about potentially taking over at Arsenal.

According to the Dailymail website, Arsenal players have already been informed that Arteta is "90 percent certain" to be in charge next season.

Meanwhile, Pires and Vieira were teammates for six years at Arsenal.

Tesla Model S Owner Says Autopilot Was Enabled During Utah Crash
On Monday, firefighters in Switzerland said a fatal accident involving a Tesla may have set off a fire in the car's battery. The NTSB is also investigating a Tesla Model S crash in Florida that left two people dead and another injured.

The Daily Telegraph says that whoever the new manager is he will have no say in the acquisition of Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu, identified by the club's head of recruitment Sven Mislintat as a priority buy this summer.

The 36-year-old is keen on compatriot Cazorla being a part of his backroom staff in a player-coach capacity should he be named manager of the Gunners.

Max Allegri seemingly ruled himself out at the weekend by revealing he plans to stay at Juventus, which made Julian Nagelsmann the most serious rival to Arteta.

Following an up and down few years Wenger failed to finish on a high, crashing out of the Europa League earlier in the month following a cagey two-leg clash against Athletico Madrid finishing 2-1 on aggregate.

It also remains unclear what Wenger's next move will be. "As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley game, I'm a fan above all".
