Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira after 18 months in charge | UK News

Crystal Palace have sacked manager Patrick Vieira after 18 months in charge of the south London club.

Chairman Steve Parish told the club’s website: “It is with immense regret that this difficult decision has been made.

“Ultimately, the results of the past few months have put us in a precarious position in the league and we felt a change was needed to give us the best chance of retaining Premier League status.

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

Three members of the former France international’s coaching staff – Osian Roberts, Kristian Wilson and Said Aigoun – have also left Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace are currently just three points above the relegation zone in the Premier League.

The Eagles are the only Premier League team without a win in 2023 – having drawn five games and lost six.

They lost 1-0 to rivals Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday.
