Paddy Vieira: I Would Love To Stay Here



Roberto Mancini's signing of Patrick Vieira from Inter Milan 16 months ago proved a cunning piece of business and the World Cup Winner wants to stay in town...

The French legend who turns 35 years old next month has played a crucial dressing room father figure role for Mancio's young squad and the likes of Mario Balotelli have spoken highly of the eloquent midfielder's influence at Eastlands.

This weekend Paddy took the opportunity via th'official site to thank the City fans for their support and reveal his hopes of a contract extension:

'I really want to stay here because I've loved my time with City...the fans have been fantastic. I just need to speak to the manager and then with the board and try to find a solution that suits everyone, but if there is a possibility, I would love to stay here.'

Vieira has chalked up 45 League and Cup appearances for City and scored 6 goals. It has been widely reported that beleagured Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger intends to offer the former captain of Arsenal and France a coaching roll in London.

Does Vieira still have a role to play at Manchester City? Give us your views here or in the VMC Forums.

Viera's qualities on and off the pitch are visable for all to see. He is an exemplary professional who exudes confidence and authority. Would happily see him back at the club as a player or player/coach. I certainly feel he still has something to give on the field.

Would be absolutely made up if Vieira stays - the man is class on and off the pitch. A ropey start followed by some great cameos and a couple of very important goals means he proved his worth to the team. Even though he may end up getting less playing time next season, I reckon Paddy has a lot to offer if he stays.

He is worth his pay for his class and the steadying effect he has on and off the field especially with the youngsters ....eg Mario

A playing career is over all too soon and if PV wants to stay then most supporters would welcome this. At some stage maybe he will become a club manager.
