Patrick Vieira appointed as coach of Ligue 1 club Strasbourg

– French club Racing Strasbourg appointed Patrick Vieira as their new coach on a three-year contract. The former France international previously coached Premier League side Crystal Palace from 2021 to this year.

The 47-year-old coach guided Palace to a 12th place finish and the FA Cup semi-finals in his first season in charge. But Vieira was sacked in mid-March following a 1-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion that left the south London club three points above the relegation zone.

“Patrick’s arrival will allow us to make further progress and take a step forward. He fits the profile we are looking for a coach with international experience, and also has good knowledge of Ligue 1 and its young players,” said Strasbourg president Marc Keller. .

At club level, he helped Arsenal to three Premier League titles, and won Serie A four times – with AC Milan in 1995-96 and with Inter Milan for three successive seasons from 2006-07.
