Patrick Viera

Crystal Palace has announced  that Patrick Vieira has been sacked as the club’s first-team manager.

This is coming sequel to his recent poor performance in about 12 successive matches since the beginning of 2023, taking the Eagles teetering above the Premier League relegation zone, with a three-point gap separating them from 18th-placed Bournemouth.

The Arsenal FC legend was hired by the club on July 4, 2021, in a three-year contract following the departure of their previous manager, Roy Hodgson, who served the club since 2017.

According to a statement on the  club’s official website on Friday ,   chairman, Steve Parish,  said “It is with enormous regret that this difficult decision has been made.

“Ultimately, results in recent months have placed us in a precarious league position and we felt a change is necessary to give us the best chance of retaining Premier League status.

“That said, Patrick’s impact since joining us in the summer of 2021 has been significant, and he is held in the highest regard by myself, and all of his colleagues.

“He led the team to a Wembley FA Cup semi-final and a respectable 12th placed finish last season playing some exciting football, which was a challenging and crucial campaign for the club given the changes we made to the squad prior to his arrival.
