Patrick Vieira won the Premier League, FA Cup, Serie A, World Cup and European Championship during his career – and even the respect of Roy Keane.
Vieira is regarded as one of the best midfielders ever to have played in the Premier League and will always be remembered as the captain of the Arsenal side that went an entire season unbeaten.
And here is what those who knew him best had to say about his incredible talent – including, of course, Roy Keane.
This is outstanding.
Five penalties were given, but only three scored.
His free-kicks alone were worth the entrance fee.
Juan Carlos Valeron was a true footballing artist.
Unexpected from Argentina’s main man.
Now we’re truly underway.
Some high praise indeed for the new Leeds boss.
When Argentina embraced the madness.
Happy birthday, Jurgen.
