Breaking: Crystal Palace Sacks Manager Patrick Vieira


Patrick Vieira has been fired as the first-team coach of Crystal Palace, the club has announced.

The decision was made following a poor stretch of play for the Eagles in 2023, who had lost all 12 of their games since the new year.

It is with great sorrow that this tough decision has been made, according to a statement from club chairman Steve Parish on the club website.

‘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 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.

‘Patrick has given his all to the club, and we all thank him and his team for their service.’

The club also confirmed that Vieira’s coaching staff, Osian Roberts, Kristian Wilson, and Saïd Aïgoun, had also left the club.

The club’s statement also reiterated that the ‘process to appoint a new manager is underway’.
