The Brazil and Arsenal legend spent six years in north London with the Gunners where he won the Premier League as well as the FA Cup.
And despite missing out on the Champions League trophy in 2006 when Arsène Wenger’s side were beaten 2-1 by Barcelona in the final, Gilberto Silva became fans favourite before leaving the club in 2008 and finally hanged up his boots in 2013 at his native club Atlético Mineiro.
He has however revealed his desire to return to Arsenal and take up some new roles preferably a coaching job as soon as his badges are secured.
“I will do my badges and I want to learn more and more about football not just on the field but off it,” the 39-year-old legendary Gunners defensive midfielder told 888.com.
“I haven’t spoken to Arsène or someone at the club about working together but if something happens of course for my feelings for the club I would think carefully in a very good way.”
