Premier League News: Patrick Vieira Ends A Brilliant Career

Posted by ei2Aevai on December 21st, 2020

It's the end of a great career: Patrick Viera has decided that 18 years spent on top of the game is enough. He will remain in Manchester City, his last team, in the role of football development manager.

He is now 35 years old and even though the best years were behind him when he moved to Etihad Stadium, fans have loved him for the passion and application to the cause. He will be remembered as one of the best midfielders to have played in the Premier League: when he was at Arsenal, he was sensational and it is no coincidence that the last trophy the Gunners won was last season.

Roberto Mancini knew Patrick Viera was closed to retire, but he wanted to bring him into the team as he still has very strong leadership qualities that are so important for a team that wants to mature to be one of The best. The Senegal-born star has an incredible 'winning mentality' that was very easy to identify even at the beginning of his career. Mancini knows very well the difference that Viera can make: the Italian tactician worked with Viera in three successful campaigns at Inter, and by the time he signed him, the French international had already won seven league titles, four FA Cups in addition to a World Cup and Confederation Cup. ดูข่าวพรีเมียร์ลีก

He did not play much this season, starting only 12 Premier League matches in 18 months, but he also helped off the field to burst the winning mentality: this has resulted in a fifth FA Cup victory. Mancini said Viera was very committed to training and he will keep him as he will be a big asset to the club, even after the end of his football career.

Following the announcement that his playing contract would not be renewed, Roberto Mancini was very quick to offer him a managerial job. The reaction of the fans was very positive and they showed joy that he will hold on. From the job profile, it looks like he will not have much involvement in the first team, which is priced 5.20 more with the Premier League. He will take an active role in the development of young people at the Platt Lane complex as a mentor.

Roberto Mancini has had a very busy summer, in addition to Patrick Viera, as Carlos Tevez is also ready to leave the club. Tevez wanted to travel to get closer to his family, but the Corinthians transfer proved difficult as the Brazilian club did not have the money to pay for the Argentine. Tevez has always been a problem for Roberto Mancini, but he is still not necessarily happy to sell his captain.
