Leeds United Eyeing Patrick Vieira as Potential Managerial Replacement

Leeds United is reportedly considering hiring Patrick Vieira as their new manager as the former Arsenal midfielder is looking to make a comeback to the Premier League. The Frenchman was sacked by Crystal Palace in March after a winless run of 12 matches that put them only three points away from relegation. Despite this, the 46-year-old is admired by the decision-makers at Elland Road and may be appointed after Javi Gracia’s contract expires at the end of the season.

Vieira on Leeds’ Shortlist Earlier in the Season

Vieira was on the shortlist to replace Jesse Marsch in February after the American was relieved of his duties following a 1-0 Premier League defeat to fellow strugglers Nottingham Forest. The former France international is keen to return to management in England after what he feels was a harsh decision by Crystal Palace to dismiss him after leading the Eagles to a 12th-place finish and the semi-finals of the FA Cup last season.

Palace’s Unsettled Players and Recruitment Frustrations

Palace brought Roy Hodgson out of retirement for a second spell at Selhurst Park after parting ways with Vieira. According to The Athletic, the players had become unsettled under his reign, and Vieira himself was frustrated by Palace’s recruitment. Leeds United’s potential appointment of Vieira could give him the chance to make an immediate return to the Premier League and redeem himself after his departure from Palace.
