Patrick Vieira on his way to Strasbourg
Two days after announcing its separation from Frédéric Antonetti, Strasbourg is on the verge of appointing a French world champion to its bench: Patrick Vieira.
Strasbourg changes dimension. Bought out last week by Chelsea's owners, the Alsatian club thanked Frédéric Antonetti on Tuesday, who had been automatically extended until 2024 after managing to keep the club in Ligue 1.
