1 Mins read

Former Arsenal and France international midfielder, Patrick Vieira has been sacked as manager of Ligue 1 club Nice, following elimination from the Europa League.

The League 1 club, Nice currently stand at the 11th position on the table.

A club statement released on Friday said, “Having arrived at OGC Nice in the summer of 2018, Patrick Vieira is no longer the coach of OGC Nice as of today.

“In an interview after last night’s meeting, the Nice board informed Patrick Vieira of their decision to end their collaboration.”

Nice have confirmed Adrien Ursea as interim manager for their trip to Reims in Ligue 1 this weekend.

Former Arsenal midfielder Vieira departed Nice after two and a half years in charge of the club, having lost their previous five games in all competitions and been eliminated from the Europa League at the group stage.

The 44-year-old former Arsenal player had also been scrutinised by fans for Nice’s uninspiring style of play.

His last domestic game in charge saw Nice draw 1-1 with Dijon, currently bottom of Ligue 1, while Vieira’s final match came on Thursday as they lost 3-2 to Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League, with Nice fans protesting against his administration outside the stadium before kick-off.

In his two full seasons in charge as manager of Nice, the club finished seventh and sixth in Ligue 1, earning Europa League qualification last season as the French football campaign ended early due to the coronavirus pandemic.
