Campbell tips Arsenal legends as ideal managerial duo

Sol Campbell believes a team of Patrick Vieira and Dennis Bergkamp should be appointed to replace Arsene Wenger.

Wenger is stepping down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season, bringing to an end 22 years in charge.

A number of managers have been tipped to take over, ranging from Carlo Ancelotti to Massimiliano Allegri.

Vieira has opened up on the chances of replacing his former manager, and Campbell has backed his old teammate.

The 43-year-old believes a team of Vieira and Bergkamp, former assistant manager at Ajax, could work well in north London.

“I think they should see if they can promote from within. It could be someone who has played for the club and is managing now – or has aspirations of managing Arsenal and would love to take that opportunity,” Campbell told

“[Mikel] Arteta has gone to Manchester City and has gained fantastic experience, but for me, someone like Patrick would be perfect and he’s great buddies with Dennis Bergkamp so for me, to have those two guys at the helm, I think that could be a really good combination.

“Bring guys who have done well for Arsenal back into the club. Otherwise, people like Carlo Ancelotti – unless he takes the Italy job – he could be a good fit. Then you’ve got [Massimiliano] Allegri and the Germany manager [Joachim] Low.
