Patrick Vieira booted out of Crystal Palace: Why?

Patrick Vieira has been shown the exit at Crystal Palace.

Three members of his coaching staff, Osian Roberts, Kristian Wilson, and Said Aigou, were also sent packing.

The reason is clear. The last time Palace won was on December 31 when they had a 2-1 success at Bournemouth.

Speaking about the club’s decision, chairman Steve Parish said;

“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. We also wish Patrick, Osian, Kristian, and Said the very best for their futures.”

Palace have confirmed the process to find Vieira’s successor is underway and that goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely will remain at the club.

Vieira’s men slipped to a 1-0 defeat at rivals Brighton on Wednesday night as their run without a goal stretched to four games.
