Arsenal legend Patrick Vieria has been appointed manager of Premier League outfit Crystal Palace.
The Frenchman was in charge of Ligue 1 outfit Nice for two years before he left the club in 2020.
After seemingly taking a break, Vieria has now signed a three-year deal with the London outfit, who parted ways with Roy Hodgson at the end of last season.
I am really excited to have this opportunity to return to the Premier League, and manage this great football club, as we begin a new chapter together.
“It is a project that is really appealing to me, having spoken a lot with the Chairman and Sporting Director about their ambition and plans for the whole club, including the Academy. The club has fantastic foundations in place after many years in the Premier League, and I hope we can make further improvements and continue to drive the club forward.
“I am also very excited to experience the atmosphere the club’s supporters make at Selhurst Park and away from home too, and I know just how important that can be for the team.”
