His final competitive game in charge saw Nice draw 1-1 with Dijon, currently bottom of Ligue 1, while Vieira’s final match came on Thursday as Bayer Leverkusen lost 3-2 in the Europa League, with a number of Nice fans protesting outside the stadium before kick-off against his management.

In May 2018, Vieira arrived in Nice, having previously been in charge of MLS side New York City FC and having served since his retirement as a player on the coaching staff at Manchester City.

Vieira took the club to seventh and sixth in Ligue 1 in his two full seasons in charge of Nice, earning Europa League qualification last season, thanks in part to the early end of the French football campaign as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Vieira was one of the most respected central midfielders in football during his playing days, helping France win the World Cup in 1998 on home soil and the European Championships two years later.

He is most closely related to Arsenal at club level, where he played between 1996 and 2005. He won three Premier League titles, most notably being part of the Invincibles side which without losing a match, won the 2003-04 domestic league.

When Arsene Wenger and successor Unai Emery left the role, which is currently held by Mikel Arteta, Vieira was linked to the Arsenal manager’s job.
