Patrick Vieira appointed New York City FC Head Coach

Former Arsenal player and current Manchester City Head of Youth Development Patrick Vieira has agreed to become the Head Coach of MLS side New York City FC.

The former French international will assume his first top managerial role from January 2016 and will manage the likes of Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo at the ambitious US side.

New York City FC and Manchester City are of course under the same ownership, so Vieira’s employers are therefore not actually changing.

Vieira has agreed to a three year contract with the MLS outfit.
