Patrick Vieira: Crystal Palace sack manager but was it the right call?

Crystal Palace have sacked manager Patrick Vieira after failing to win a game this year in any competition – but was it the right call?

Club chairman Steve Parish was careful to acknowledge the positive strides made under Vieira’s tenure in the club statement accompanying his departure.

It read: “Patrick’s impact since joining us in the summer of 2021 has been significant… 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.”
