OFFICIAL: Crystal Palace have appointed Patrick Vieira as the manager

Crystal Palace are delighted to confirm the appointment of Patrick Vieira as its new manager for the next three seasons.

Considered one of the best players of his generation, Vieira played an integral part in Arsenal’s domestic success between 1997 and 2005 under Arsene Wenger, winning three Premier League titles and four F.A. Cups. He represented the north London club 396 times and was named in the Premier League PFA Team of the Year for six consecutive years.

On the international stage, Vieira made more than 100 appearances for France over a 12-year period, which included several spells as captain, winning the FIFA World Cup in 1998 and UEFA European Championship in 2000

Having hung up his boots, Vieira began his transition into coaching at Manchester City’s Academy, embarking on a four-year apprenticeship in management that included a spell managing the club’s Elite Development Squad.

He departed City for the States and the 2016 Major League Soccer season, taking up the managerial position at New York City F.C

Vieira subsequently returned to France to manage Ligue 1 club Nice in 2018, securing a seventh-place finish in his first season. In 2019/20, Vieira’s side placed fifth in a curtailed season, securing a Europa League spot in the process.
