Patrick Vieira announced as new Crystal Palace boss

2 min read

Patrick Vieira has been confirmed as the new Crystal Palace manager as the Eagles brought their long search for Roy Hodgson’s replacement to an end.

The Palace job is the Arsenal legend’s first role in Premier League management, having previously taken charge of Nice and New York City FC. Vieira has been out of work since leaving his role at Nice last year.

The 45-year-old has signed a three-year deal at Selhurst Park.

Palace have been in talks with a number of manager’s since the decision was made that Hodgson would step back at the end of last season. Deals for Nuno Espirito Santo – now the Tottenham manager – and former Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre both collapsed at the 11th hour.

Vieira has a lot on his plate when he begins work in south London. The squad have already returned for pre-season training, though there is a sizeable gap with 11 players now out of contract and decisions to be made over whether or not they will be offered a future at the club.

The former France international will also have to move quickly in the transfer market. Palace’s squad is in need of investment and re-energising while the future of Wilfried Zaha remains a question mark.

Zaha again made his desire to leave the club for greater challenges clear earlier this summer but there has been no concrete interest in the winger as of yet.

Vieira will also be without attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze and promising full-back Nathan Ferguson for the start of his tenure with both having suffered Achillies injuries in the final week of the Premier League season.
