I'm particularly happy to be joining Racing," Vieira told the RCSA website. I'm familiar with the club's history and identity, the fervor it arouses, and the importance it holds for its territory, a land of soccer and passion. The rebuilding of the club over the last few years under Marc Keller's leadership is a shining example. Working with him is a real pleasure. Today, a new cycle is beginning for Racing, and it's exciting for a coach to be able to build on the values that make a club strong".
