Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Patrick Vieira has the credentials to become a successful manager. But the Gunners boss thinks Manchester City already have a man of "super" calibre in their top job in Manuel Pellegrini.
Vieira, one of Wenger's most influential former Gunners captains, is currently the manager of City's elite development squad. Recent speculation over Pellegrini's future has seen the Frenchman mentioned as a potential successor to the Chilean at the Etihad Stadium.
"I believe like many other players he has the intelligence and the competence to do this job, but I believe that Pellegrini is of super-competence and super-quality as well - so if you want me to interfere in that, I am not ready to do it."
Pellegrini's position has come under scrutiny as City have collapsed in the Barclays Premier League title race in the second half of the season.
The defending champions were joint top in January but are now fourth after a dismal three months in which they also went out of the Champions League and FA Cup.
A host of names have been linked with Pellegrini's job-also including Pep Guardiola, Diego Simeone, Jurgen Klopp, Carlo Ancelotti and Rafael Benitez - but City have given no indication they are considering a change.
FC United of Manchester, the club set up in protest at the Glazer takeover of Manchester United, are now just two promotions away from joining the Football League.
They're not even ten years old, but last night secured a fourth promotion - this time into Conference North.
Our sports correspondent David Chisnall was there to see the celebrations.
If you think you know where your fellow fans are located, you may be surprised by Twitter's new Premier League Twitter fan map, which shows a detailed global breakdown of the followers of all 20 clubs in the top flight.
Sorry, this content isn't available on your device.
Outside the UK, Liverpool boast huge numbers of supporters in Scandinavia. Meanwhile footie fans in the Indian sub-continent are all about Manchester United.
Also highlighted are Everton and Manchester City strongholds across the Atlantic.
The map was created by looking at the official Twitter accounts for each team, using their followers as an indicator of allegiance - as opposed to instances in which people mention a team while watching an interesting match or talking about a team’s rival.
