Patrick Vieira has been appointed as manager of the Ligue 1 side Nice. The former Arsenal captain has left his role as head coach role of New York City FC to replace Lucien Favre at the Allianz Riviera.
The Frenchman had been linked with replacing Arsène Wenger at Arsenal following his countryman’s departure, but he now returns to his homeland to take charge of a Nice side that finished eighth last season.
“Vieira departs after two and a half years at the helm having led the team to two consecutive play‑off appearances and with a current second place standing in the Eastern Conference.”
