This season, Patrick Vieira has earned rave reviews for his work at the Crystal Palace team. Patrick Vieira is eyed to take over at the Gunners one day.
On Monday night, Vieira masterminded a dominant 3-0 win for Crystal Palace over his former club, earning his side a spot in the Premier League top half.
There were unsettled thoughts on how well the Frenchman would manage to change Palace tactics from Roy Hodgson’s more direct and defensive style to a passing and progressive way of attacking play.
But it is a change he has handled so well, with Palace one of this season’s surprise packages.
His work at Crystal Palace has also made him a favorite to be a potential coach of the Gunners. Vieira spent nine years stint as an Arsenal player, captaining them to three Premier League titles.
One of his former teammates under Arsène Wenger has revealed how Vieira has changed regular patterns at Crystal Palace. Emmanuel Petit played alongside Vieira and has impressed his countryman’s work since replacing Hodgson.
