Patrick Vieira confirmed as new Nice boss after New York City exit

Patrick Vieira New York City FC

"I would like to thank City Football Group and New York City FC for the opportunity to have coached this tremendous football club", Vieira said in a statement.

He then moved into coaching taking charge of the under-19 and under-21 Manchester City teams before coaching NY, which shares its owner with City.

Vieira led New York City to two consecutive playoff appearances and leaves with the team in second place in the Eastern Conference.

The news that he would leave to take over at Ligue 1 side Nice was strangely announced on Manchester City's website, before being taken down. He was also briefly linked to the Arsenal position following Arsene Wenger's departure.

The game will be published by Activision - a new partnership for FromSoft - but release on PC via Steam, rather than Battle.net. The player character's apparent high agility thanks to his prosthetic arm attachments and ninja skills was a highlight as well.

Vieira will replace Lucien Favre, who is taking over at Borussia Dortmund.

"Through its chairman Jean-Pierre Rivere, OGC Nice has announced it was looking for a coach with the ability to continue to play flowing football, bring on young players and take the risk of having them evolve while bringing a winning spirit to the table".

"Patrick has been a fantastic role model at NYCFC and a true leader on and off the field".

Vieira, 41, will be joined in Nice by his assistant Christian Lattanzio and members of the NY backroom staff including performance coach Kristian Wilson and physical performance coach Matt Cook. His contract runs until the end of the 2020 season.

"I'm very happy to be here".

Torrent was a head coach at Girona in the Spanish third division in 2005-06.

The Frenchman earned 107 caps for his nation and was part of the team that won the 1998 World Cup and the European Championship two years later.
