Nice appoint Patrick Vieira as new manager - Ligue 1 2017

Patrick Vieira

Patrick Vieira's departure from New York City to take over as head coach of Nice has been confirmed by the Ligue 1 club.

Torrent, 55, replaces Patrick Vieira, who has left NYCFC to join Ligue 1 side OGC Nice after two and a half seasons in MLS.

The former Arsenal, Juventus and Inter Milan star returns to France after a 23-year career overseas as a player and a manager.

Add to that a 1998 World Cup winners' medal and success at Euro 2000 and Vieira's distinguished career is one that many will remember.

Vieira, 41, has been in charge of Major League Soccer club New York City since 2016, having started his coaching career in Manchester City's academy following his retirement from playing.

Can to leave Liverpool as contract runs out
Emre Can will leave Liverpool when his contract expires at the end of this month, the Premier League club have confirmed. The 24-year-old signed from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014 and has made 167 appearances for Liverpool , scoring 14 goals .

After joining the Gunners in 1996, Vieira went on to win three Premier League titles, including captaining the club during their unbeaten "Invincibles" campaign of 2003/04. He has a very clear idea of the style of play he wants - he's a coach who will want to play the attacking and possession style of soccer that we want to continue to build upon. The team are now second in the Eastern Conference.

"Though I have enjoyed a wonderful 11 years working alongside my colleague and close friend Pep Guardiola - it has always been my ambition to manage a team again and I really couldn't have hoped for a better opportunity than at this football club", Torrent told the official New York City FC website.

David Villa, NYCFC's most high-profile player and another man to have lifted both a World Cup and a European Championship title, tweeted his own message to Vieira.

Vieira's assistant coach Christian Lattanzio, performance coach Kristian Wilson and physical performance coach Matt Cook at NY will follow the Frenchman to Nice.
