Seven months after his departure from OGC Nice, Patrick Vieira is on the verge of taking over a team on the side of the Premier League.
December 4, 2020, Patrick Vieira was thanked by OGC Nice. The French coach had since been without a club and had notably offered a freelance as a consultant for the English media during the Euro. Exactly seven months after his departure from Nice, the 1998 world champion will resume service with a great baptism of fire in the Premier League.
According to The Athletic, Vieira is about to engage with Crystal Palace who has just separated (by mutual agreement) from Roy Hodgson. According to the media, the French are expected this Sunday in the English capital to sign a contract there until 2024.
This challenge will be a great first in England for Patrick Vieira who had until then only exercised the function of coach of the Manchester City reserve. Last season, the Eagles finished in fourteenth place in the Premier League.
