Crystal Palace has sacked manager, Patrick Vieira after a 12-match winless run.


Crystal Palace has sacked its manager, Patrick Viera after the Palace have not won a match in 2023 and was beaten 1-0 by Brighton in the Premier League on Wednesday, their third defeat in a row.

They are 12th in the table but are only three points above 18th-placed Bournemouth, who have a game in hand.

Crystal Palace chairman, Steve Parish disclosed that it is with this enormous regret that this difficult decision had been made.

Furthermore, results in recent months have placed them in a precarious league position and they felt a change is necessary to give them the best chance of retaining Premier League status.

Meanwhile, Frenchman Patrick Vieira, 46, was appointed before the start of the 2021-22 season and led the Eagles to a 12th-placed finish, earning praise for an attacking style.

However, this season they have scored just 21 goals in 27 games – only Wolves, Everton and bottom-of-the-table Southampton have fewer.

Before their defeat by Brighton, Palace had gone three consecutive games without a shot on target.

No Premier League team has won fewer points in 2023 than Palace, who have taken five from a possible 33.

Three members of Vieira’s coaching staff – Osian Roberts, Kristian Wilson, and Said Aigoun – have also left the club and the process of appointing a new manager is underway.

Just five points separate the Premier League’s bottom nine clubs heading into the final months of the season.

Also, Steve Parish added that 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 before his arrival.

“Patrick has given his all to the club, and we all thank him and his team for their service.” He added.
