Vieira: ” Current Arsenal players are better than my generation”

Arsenal midfielder on Chelsea radar

Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has claimed that the current team contains “better football players” than when he was at the club.


“I’m not one to say, “Our generation was better than this generation”. It doesn’t make sense to compare the two generations because we are in a different period,” Vieira told the Daily Mail.

“The team in our generation were more physical but this generation are better football players, there’s no doubt about that. So the balance is what Arsenal need to find. We had the physicality to deal with different situations.”
