Vieira quits New York City FC for Nice job

Vieira retired at Manchester City in 2011 and began his coaching career at City's youth team before joining NY and guiding them to successive playoff appearances.

The former Arsenal and France midfielder leaves New York City FC after a two-and-half year spell in charge of the MLS side.

"From the fantastic staff in the front office, the outstanding sporting department lead by Claudio Reyna and the immensely talented players, New York City FC is a Club with a wonderful future ahead of it - I will always be a fan and it will hold a special place in my heart".

Nice finished eighth in the French top flight but are expected to lose Mario Balotelli, who scored 18 league goals last season but is out of contract at the end of the month.

He leaves NY second in the MLS Eastern Conference after Friday's draw with Atlanta.

Manchester City have announced that Arsenal and France great Patrick Vieira is leaving New York City to become Nice head coach.

Vieira is set to take his three assistants with him to Nice - Christian Lattanzio, Kristian Wilson, and Matt Cook - all of whom previously worked for him with Manchester City's youth squad.

"Nice were looking for a coach with the ability to continue to produce attractive football, to bring through youngsters by taking risks to help them grow, and someone who lives and breathes to win", President Jean-Pierre Rivere said on the club's website.

The 41-year-old had been linked with replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium following his former manager's departure. "We know that leaving the Club has been a hard decision for him but we understand his choice to return to Europe where he spent his whole playing career".

Edelman was pleased to move so quickly to replace Vieira. "I know Domenec can't wait to get started". In four seasons, Barcelona won three La Liga titles, two UEFA Champions League trophies, two UEFA Super Cups, two Spanish Cups, three Spanish Super Cups and two FIFA Club World Cups.
