Patrick Viera has been sacked as the Coach of Ligue 1 club nice, following series of poor form of results, both in Europe and domestic league.
A club statement released on Friday morning said: “Having arrived at OGC Nice in the summer of 2018, Patrick Vieira is no longer the coach of OGC Nice as of today.
“In an interview after last night’s meeting, the Nice board informed Patrick Vieira of their decision to end their collaboration.”
Assistant, Adrien Ursea has been appointed Interim manager for their trip to Reims in Ligue 1 this weekend.
The former Arsenal captain was in charge of the club for two and a half years, with the club having lost their previous five games in all competitions and been eliminated from the Europa League at the group stage.
Fans had also criticised the 44-year-old former France international for Nice’s uninspiring style of play, and he leaves the club, hoping to qualify for Europe again this season, 11th in the Ligue 1 table.
His last domestic game in charge saw Nice draw 1-1 with Dijon, currently bottom of Ligue 1, while Vieira’s final match came on Thursday as they lost 3-2 to Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League, with several Nice fans sited outside the stadium protesting against his management just before Thursday night match.
