Crystal Palace have confirmed that they have parted ways with manager Patrick Vieira.

Crystal Palace have sacked manager Patrick Vieira after 18 months in charge.

Vieira has left Palace after a run of 12 games without a victory in all competitions – with their last win coming against Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve 2022.

Palace chairman Steve Parish said in a statement: “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.”

Palace have also confirmed that, Osian Roberts, Kristian Wilson and Saïd Aïgoun have also left the club alongside Vieira as Dean Kiely will remain as goalkeeping coach while the search for a new manager is underway.

Palace’s next game is against Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
