Arsenal hero Patrick Vieira to leave Man City for head coach role at New York City FC

Vieria will leave his role as head of the Elite Development Squad at Manchester City to join their American franchise in New York on a three-year deal from January 1.

"I am delighted to take up the role of Head Coach of New York City FC," Vieira said.

"To work with this squad, with Claudio Reyna and Rob Vartughian and the fantastic support team that is in place, is an exciting prospect for any coach.

"This established football set up, together with a passionate and loyal fan base, located in a special city which I know well, makes for an unparalleled opportunity that I am delighted to seize with both hands. I cannot wait to get started.”

The club's president Tom Glick said: “The open position of head coach at New York City FC has prompted significant interest and I have no doubt that in Patrick, we have one of the most impressive young coaches I have encountered.

"Patrick’s ability, vision and the respect in which he is held by everyone who works with him, speaks volumes for his character and capacity to succeed. I am excited to work with him and I know the energy he will bring to the role will have a hugely positive impact across the club.”

Vieira had been linked with the Newcastle position in the summer before Steve McClaren was appointed.

NYCFC finished eighth in the Eastern Conference in their first season in Major League Soccer and sacked Jason Kreis last month.
