Racing Club de Strasbourg Alsace announced the signing of Patrick Vieira (47) on a three-year contract on Sunday evening.

Free since his recent sacking from Crystal Palace, Patrick Vieira is bouncing back on the Strasbourg bench, bought ten days ago by Chelsea's owners. Former coach of New York City FC and OGC Nice, Vieira has signed until June 2026 with the Alsatian club, taking over from Frédéric Antonetti.

"I'd like to welcome Patrick Vieira, whom I knew in the French national team, and I'm delighted to welcome him to Strasbourg," commented Racing President Marc Keller. Patrick's arrival should enable us to make further progress and take things to the next level. He fits the profile we were looking for: a coach with international experience who also has a good knowledge of Ligue 1 and young players. We're convinced he'll do a great job here, in a healthy and fulfilling environment. We're going to put him in the best possible conditions to succeed."
