Crystal Palace have parted ways with manager Patrick Vieira after a run of 12 games without a win.
The decision was made due to concerns over the quality of his coaching staff, unsettled players, frustration with recruitment, and difficulty communicating with Vieira. The Frenchman leaves Palace just three points above the Premier League relegation zone, with the Eagles failing to win a single game so far this year. Vieira was also criticized for his relaxed nature in the midst of a relegation battle.
The former Arsenal midfielder expressed his anger at feeling unsupported and the news of his departure being leaked. Crystal Palace have won only one of their eight London derby matches this season, with the fewest goals scored and the worst goal difference. Former boss Roy Hodgson is in talks to replace Vieira at Selhurst Park, with the Eagles set to face
Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
