LONDON (AFP) - Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira has revealed he started the infamous tunnel row between the Gunners and Manchester United in 2005.

Vieira sparked a hostile exchange between the two bitter rivals at Highbury as the players lined up in the tunnel ahead of kick-off.

The bust-up was partially captured by television cameras, with United's Roy Keane responding angrily after Vieira exchanged words with Gary Neville.

United went on to win the Premier League clash 4-2, with neither side punished for the fracas, and former France star Vieira admitted he caused the tunnel chaos in an ITV documentary, Keane And Vieira: The Best Of Enemies, to be screened on Tuesday, Dec 10, 2013.
