Crystal Palace sacks Patrick Vieira after 12 games without a win

Crystal Palace has confirmed that Patrick Vieira has been sacked as the club’s first-team manager.

The decision comes after a dismal run of form for the Eagles in 2023, who have failed to win any of their 12 matches since the start of the new year.

A statement from club chairman Steve Parish on the club website read: ‘It is with enormous regret that this difficult decision has been made.

‘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’.
