Managerial Carousel

Crystal Palace has named Patrick Vieira as their new manager. The appointment ends a difficult search for the Eagles which saw close encounters with both Nuno Espirito Santo and Lucien Favre fail to result in signed agreements before Palace found its man in the former Arsenal legend. Vieira captained the Arsenal “Invincibles” during a stellar playing career which he finished at Manchester City. The Frenchman gained experience coaching Manchester City youth players before leading sister club New York City FC (NYCFC) to two consecutive playoff berths in Major League Soccer. Vieira left NYCFC for Nice in Ligue 1 where he led them to seventh and fifth place finishes before being sacked this past year. Vieira faces a difficult challenge at Crystal Palace which has only 18 players under contract as they enter preseason.
