Vieira sees red over interview

Published Add your comment

Patrick Vieira has reacted with fury to what he claims is a "serious and cynical misrepresentation" of an interview he gave at the Soccerex conference in Manchester on Wednesday afternoon.

Having stoked the flames of controversy last week by suggesting it had been a desperate measure from Manchester United to bring Paul Scholes out of retirement in January, Vieira seemed to suggest United were benefiting from refereeing decisions in a pre-arranged interview with the BBC's Dan Roan.

Vieira said: "I am very angry with Dan Roan. I feel he has misrepresented me."
