Patrick Vieira set to join Crystal Palace

Patrick Vieira has agreed to become the new Crystal Palace manager.

Crystal Palace board had hoped Lucien Favre would change his mind over the weekend.

But the ex-Borussia Dortmund boss is opting not to take charge in a late U-turn last week, but moved focus to Vieira shortly after.

Vieira last managed Ligue 1 club Nice, first taking charge in the summer of 2018.

He was sacked in December last year following a run of five defeats in all competitions.

Who is Patrick Vieira

The former Arsenal captain won three Premier Leagues and four FA Cups with the Gunners.

He previously coached at Manchester City before spending two and a half years in the United States in charge of MLS side New York City.

Vieira, a World Cup winner with France in 1998, was linked with Newcastle back in 2018.

Meanwhile, in 2019 Arsene Wenger backed his former captain to become Arsenal manager in the future.

He has been linked with numerous jobs in recent seasons, including the previously vacant position at Championship side Bournemouth.
